What is Britannica LumieLabs?

LumieLabs helps students to become skilled collaborators, communicators, and media-savvy consumers with enhanced critical-thinking skills. Its simple interface, robust library of content, and classroom management tools enable schools to empower the next generation of learners to thrive in a media-centric world.

Students who use LumieLabs develop deeper content knowledge, increasing their subject-area comprehension, retention, and mastery. Featuring millions of royalty free clips and simple cloud-based editing, LumieLabs has been adopted by educators and students across 10 different countries.

Britannica LumieLabs allows teachers to weave digital storytelling projects into the subject-area content through curriculum-relevant video projects. These are searchable by curriculum, grade band, and subject, and have been developed by curriculum experts to include learning objectives and outcomes.

Sharing permissions enable students, classrooms, and entire schools to host their videos within customised and secure areas, leave feedback, and promote upcoming content or events. In this way, Britannica LumieLabs can help make virtual learning both engaging and user-friendly whilst maintaining those important safeguarding elements for schools.

Recommended Usage

We recommend Britannica LumieLabs being used as much as possible when wanting to introduce a different and digital way of assessing formatively or summatively. Regular use of the platform will also enhance students' confidence in creating digital stories and using Britannica LumieLabs in general.
