(SPOT.ph) It’s been roughly two years since the popular social media app TikTok became everyone’s favorite way to pass the time. What started as easy-to-copy dance videos, the platform’s content has evolved to bite-sized vlogs, skits, and more. Nowadays, it isn’t uncommon to spend hours swiping up on the app (roughly three to four hours for the author) where you fall into a very deep hole that is very hard to get out of.
In the past few months, various creators have taken to utilizing the algorithm to its full potential not just to entertain but to educate as well. Ranging from videos about health, fitness, financial topics, and even history, these Filipino creators reinvent the term "edutainment."
Here are 10 Filipino TikTok creators that give you your daily dose of edutainment:

If you have a question about the medicine you take, then most likely, Arshie has a video on it.

Remember that time when paracetamol was in high demand? He actually made a video to teach people how to identify fake paracetamol as a precautionary measure!
