If you aren’t already addicted, the time is now to hop on the TikTok bandwagon, especially to harness the power of the app when it comes to creating learning and organizational development-related content. 

TikTok is a social network app for sharing short, user-generated videos. Originally created for users to dance or lip-sync along to popular songs, the app has taken the world by storm with more than 800 million active users and 20 million subscribers. 

So, what’s so addictive about it and how can learning & development teams leverage TikTok’s winning engagement tactics to integrate into their organization’s L&D strategy in order to captivate their own modern learners?

Join Instructional Designer/Healthcare IT Trainer and ATDNYC Member, Samantha Peller, as she shares the scoop on the fastest growing social media platform.

Learning Outcomes:

  • The basics of the once-known dancing app and how TikTok can be an effective tool for creating memorable, engaging L&D content. 
  • Tips and Tricks that will harness the power of user-generated content for L&D purposes.
  • By the end of class, you'll have the tools and confidence to take your TikTok account to the next level when creating micro-learning content
