Encyclopedia Britannica’sLumieLabs uses video creation and digital storytelling to harness students’ passion and natural engagement with media. Featuring millions of royalty-free clips, editing tools, and personalized, project-based video lessons, the platform enables students to tell digital stories that combine footage, images, music, text, and a narrative voice. Whether they use the media provided or add their own images, video, and voiceovers, students develop their creativity, as well as their research, writing, and critical-thinking skills.
