Britannica Launches Video Storytelling Platform

Encyclopaedia Britannica and Binumi announced today that they have teamed up to bring video storytelling into Britannica’s global product lines.

The first product emerging from the partnership is LumieLabs™. Named after filmmaking pioneers the Lumière brothers, LumieLabs gives K-12 school users millions of royalty-free multimedia clips structured around the curriculum, cloud-based editing and secure video hosting and sharing. Other products are slated to be announced by the partnership later this year.

“We’re focused on enabling students to develop critical skills – curiosity, critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication – that instill lifelong learning agility and prepare students for challenges and opportunities the fast-paced disruptive world throws at them. LumieLabs is our next generation platform that helps students develop and hone these critical skills,” said Karthik Krishnan, global CEO of the Britannica Group.
