Genially in a nutshell

How do I make a presentation in Genially and how does it work? Find the answers to all your slide-related questions! 

Interactive slides contain clickable hotspots, hyperlinks, buttons, and animations that are activated at the touch of a button. Instead of reading or watching passively, your audience can actively interact with the material. 


Interactive presentation software allows you to combine text, photos and video, audio, and other online content in one dynamic document. This makes it easier to condense more information into fewer slides. 


If you’re a teacher, you can share multiple materials in one single learning resource. Plus your students can create their own projects using digital media and online maps. For business or training, try embedding spreadsheet data, PDFs, and online content directly in your slides.


An interactive slide deck is more user-friendly than a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation or Google Slides document. That’s because you can break information down into digestible chunks with pop-up windows, labels, voiceover explainers, and annotated infographics


The other benefit of interactive content is increased engagement and participation. It’s easier to maintain the focus and attention of your audience when they’re actively involved in what they’re reading. Give Genially’s free presentation program a spin to see how it’s better than standard presentation websites.

You’ve got a deadline looming and you’re staring at the screen with a blank presentation. We’ve all been there! Starting a presentation design from scratch is tricky, especially if you’re under time pressure or you don’t have the world’s greatest artistic skills.



The Genially presentation platform has over 2000 ready-to-use templates for professional slide presentations. Each slide design has been created by our team of top graphic designers, so you don’t need to worry about fonts, centering images, or designing a matching color scheme. It’s all done for you. 



Just choose a theme (browse our tailor-made layouts for education, business, university, training and marketing) and customize with your own text and images.

Because Genially is a cloud based presentation software, you can simply share the link to your slides, as with other online presentation tools. There are no files to download or store on your computer because everything is saved online.  



When you publish a slide deck in Genially, it automatically gets its own unique url, just like a website. Share the link with your students, colleagues, or clients to let them explore the content in their own time. If you’re presenting online or in person, just click the Present button. 



You can also embed your Genially presentation on your website, company wiki, or social media. Genially is compatible with WordPress, Moodle, Google Classroom, and other top platforms. If you work with a LMS, you also have the option to download your interactive design slides in SCORM format.

Start by identifying who your target audience is, how much time they have, and how complex your material is. Would your audience prefer to read a deck in their own time, or even watch a video? Which format will help them absorb information and grasp the key takeaways?



Genially slides offer you multiple format options. To create a slideshow with music or voiceover, just change the navigation mode to Video and your slides will advance automatically. You can also download your slideshows and presenter-less presentations as an MP4 video. Check out Genially’s online slideshow maker to learn more.



Remember that when it comes to presenting, less is always more. Keep text to a minimum, choose a harmonious color scheme that complements your topic, and make sure to use graphs and images to illustrate your points. 

The best interactive presentation activities get your audience interested in the topic and help them understand your points.  When you want to go into detail on a subject, try adding a tooltip, callout, or close-up. These options are great for explaining complex diagrams and charts. 



Text overload is a common problem that can be solved by making slides interactive. Long pages of text are boring and difficult to read, leading people to switch off and lose concentration. Break the monotony with pop-up explainers, video and audio clips, or voiceover. 



Interactive images are another useful format when you’re presenting a new product, event, or training materials. By annotating maps, photos or diagrams with interactive hotspots you can provide a lot of contextual information on one screen.



Struggling to make a dull topic exciting? Interactive games, quizzes, and puzzles are your friend. As well as introducing a bit of fun, gamification makes information more memorable. To make your audience feel even more involved, try adding questions to your slides to gather responses and feedback. Everyone loves sharing their opinion!



With Genially’s online presentation maker, anyone can add these interactive activities to their slides in a couple of clicks. Give it a try!
