Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

It's easy to navigate the menu and swipe through videos.

Violence

Some videos could potentially reference violent events.

Sex

At least one video's topic is sex ed and references body parts, safe sex practices, and orgasms.

Language

At least one video references body parts, like butt, boobs, vagina.

Consumerism

Some videos could potentially refer to specific brands.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Some videos could potentially reference drinking, drugs, or smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that EduDo: Learn with short videos is a feed of supposedly user-generated videos with light educational content geared towards teens and adults. Unlike open social media video-based platforms like TikTok, the videos here seem semi-professionally produced and the app's developers approve all creators before they can post. Videos last up to several minutes and address a variety of topics from healthy eating to how to create an elevator pitch. Any user can send a request to become content creator, though the approval process for isn't at all clear. At the time of this review, some content creators are hard to understand. To use, kids need to sign in with an account from a third-party platform such as Apple, Google, Snapchat, or Twitter. Kids also need to indicate their birthday -- though the reason for this is unclear -- and choose how many notifications they want to receive. Users can share videos through direct links to a variety of social media platforms such Facebook or Reddit. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your (or your kids') information is collected, used, and shared and any choices you may have in the matter, and note that privacy policies and terms of service frequently change.

Is it any good?

A small number of videos with interesting tidbits of information or advice is lost in this peculiar collection of marginally educational topics. EduDo: Learn with short videos covers a broad range, such as beauty tips, travel advice, world news headlines, and activism. Sometimes there's information that teens may find useful, and some videos offer a unique perspective. Yet most videos are irrelevant, odd, or so superficial as to be not worthwhile. The multiple choice question at the end of each videos often has nothing to do with the information presented in the video, or is written poorly enough to make it difficult to understand that the question is asking. Many videos also may be culturally relevant for the developer's country of origin, but less so for a broader audience. Finally, although EduDo: Learn with short videos is described as a user-generated platform, it's actually not open for users to post their own content. And the developers aren't at all transparent about who the content creators are, how to become one, and what the working relationship between the content creators and developer is.
