TikTok is included on the most popular social media apps across the globe. Unlike Facebook, Instagram, and other social media platforms, this Chinese application focuses mainly on entertainment. All of its users can contribute to the ever-growing social media platform.

But, TikTok is also popular when it comes to giving tips and hacks that are really useful with people's daily lives, especially during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
BuzzFeed's official Twitter account posted a short clip from TikTok revealing several tricks that people can use during their online classes. The first technique is opening a Word file and then pressing the "Fn" key twice. Doing this will allow you to put all the words that your teacher says into text.
TikTok online class techniques
Transposing your teacher's voice into texts is just one of the tricks that are offered on TikTok. Another method is specifically used on YouTube. If you are required to watch a documentary or a short film on YT, you can check if the video has a CC (Closed Caption) option, which is also known as the subtitle.
Seth Thomas, a masters student and Tik Tok influencer, performs a university-provided SARS-CoV-2 lateral flow test on himself in his college room ahead of his trip home to the USA on December 12, last year, in Oxford, England. The university concluded its Michaelmas term largely under England's nationwide lockdown that curtailed in-person instruction and suspended extracurricular events.

If the YouTube video has it, then all you need to do is click the three-dot icon beside the Save option. This will allow you to see the actual statements in the footage. On the other hand, there are also some tricks that don't require tech skills.
One of these is suddenly freezing in front of an online class when the teacher asks you for an answer. To pull this off, all you need to do is speak for a few seconds and then quickly mute your mic until you stop moving. After that, just drop the call and tell your teacher that you currently have a faulty internet connection. This technique was explained by the YT channel Viral TikToks.
Most useful TikTok hack
TikTok user @kadama might have leaked one of the most useful hacks for an online class since it allows you to know all the answers to an online quiz or test. The first thing you need to do is open your teacher's test file and then click the "Inspect Elements" option. After that, you must choose the "Forms" section and click the folder that starts with "1F." Once you are there, all you need to do is click the "This File" button.
As disclaimer, students need to focus on finishing and not cheating their way to finish their classes. So, these tricks are not really advisable to do now.
