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.
