Genially in a nutshell

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

What’s an interactive presentation?

Interactive slides contain clickable hotspots, links, 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 content.  

Genially’s interaction presentation software allows you to combine text, photos, video clips, audio and other content in one deck. It’s a great way to condense more information into fewer slides. 

If you’re a teacher, you can share multiple materials in one single learning resource. 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 chunks with pop-ups, labels, voiceovers and annotated infographics.  

The other benefit of interactive content is increased engagement. It’s easier to keep your audience’s attention when they’re actively participating. Try Genially’s presentation software and free slideshow maker to see how it’s better than other presentation websites. You won’t go back to standard presentation apps!

How do you make a clickable slide?

The best way to make slides clickable is to use Genially’s free interactive presentation program. Design your slide then apply an interaction. In a couple of clicks, you can add popup windows, hyperlinks, close-up images, games, animations, multimedia and other content. 

Choose from the library of hotspot buttons and icons to show people what to click on. Go to Presenter View to get a preview and see how your content will appear to your audience.

What are good interactive activities in a presentation?

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

Text overload is a common problem that is solved if you make slides interactive. Long pages of text are boring and difficult to read, leading people to switch off and lose concentration. Record a voiceover or try adding audio and video explainers.

Interactive images are another useful format for presenting information. By annotating maps, photos or diagrams with interactive hotspots you can provide a lot of contextual information on one single screen.

Looking for ways to make dull topics exciting? Try including a game, challenge or quiz. 

As well as injecting a bit of fun, gamification makes information memorable. To get your audience involved and gather feedback, add questions to your slides. Everyone loves sharing their opinion!

How do I create presentations that look professional?

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 short on time. 

Genially’s free online presentation maker has over 2000 ready-to-use templates for professional slide presentations, photos slideshows, and more. Each slide design has been created by our team of top graphic designers. No need to worry about fonts, centering images, or designing a matching color scheme. It’s all done for you. 

Start by browsing our layouts and themes for education, business and then customize with your own text and images.

How do I share or download my slides?

Because Genially is a cloud based presentation software, you can simply share the link to your slides. Like other online presentation tools, there are no files to download or store on your computer. Everything is saved online.  

When you publish your slide deck, it gets its own unique url, just like a website. Share the link with others to let them explore the content in their own time. If you’re presenting live, just click the Present button. 

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

For slideshow videos and slideshows with music, share online or download as an MP4 video. Check out our free slideshow templates for ideas.

Can I make a free presentation in Genially?

You bet! Genially is an easy-to-use slide maker, with a free version and paid plans. The free plan allows you to create unlimited slides with interactions and animations. Subscribe to one of our paid plans for more advanced features.

How to Create Engaging Educational PowerPoint Presentations

Visual teaching is the best way to pass messages for learning purposes. However, there is an argument that using technical devices for education will interrupt students' thinking and creative capacity. 

These arguments are common in educational debates. On the other hand, delivering an idea with demonstrations has an immense impact on recalling and understanding a topic. So here comes the importance of engaging educational PowerPoint templates. 

The following article covers:

Why create an educational PowerPoint presentation?

Making educational PowerPoint presentations

Why create an educational PowerPoint presentation? 

Educational PowerPoint presentation will pass information to the audience with eye-catching visuals. So, it is both informative and introductory.  

It aims to familiarize the viewers with the topic. The viewers include students, business executives, researchers, and others seeking information.

PowerPoint is an effective tool for presenting study materials. Hence, it will help in the classroom and strengthen students' learning capacities. The educators may use supporting visuals like images, graphs, data-driven charts, and tables to pass an idea. Such visuals will help the viewer to get the idea effortlessly. 

Making educational PowerPoint presentations  

Let's look at the main steps it takes to create an engaging educational PowerPoint presentation. You can use  Google Slides ,  Keynotes , or any other presentation software to create one.  

#1 Define the objectives

First, you have to set a learning goal. It refers to what your audience will know after seeing your presentation. 

The objectives of the presentation may differ according to the type of presentation. The types include

  • Decision driven . This type of presentation is used when you need to achieve a common goal, so you need a presentation guide to help everyone in decision-making. 
  • Persuasive . These are mainly used when giving a business pitch or making a sales offer. 
  • Informative . As you can guess from the name, these presentations are mainly used to share knowledge or information.  
  • Introductory. 

You can set your objectives according to the type. Each of these types comprises different desired outcomes. 

#2 Focus on the target audience and accessibility 

For the presentation to achieve its purpose, you should know the strengths, weaknesses & needs of your target audience . 

For example, learners with visual or hearing impairments could not be able to access a PowerPoint presentation. They need help to go through images, sound, and graphics. Besides, you must consider the audience's age, language skills, and ability to interpret a concept. 

#3 Define what you want from an education PowerPoint presentation 

The purpose of learning should explain clearly and concisely. For example, what specific skills should a learner have to display, produce, and know as a result of the PowerPoint class? So, you make sure that outcomes should be attainable. 

#4 Plan your content  

After you determine your content, you should select the best format. You can create this format as table content, a data chart, a comparison diagram, a circular diagram, or a timeline template. 

For example, if you think of lecturing about key milestones of American Slavery prohibitions, your format should be a timeline PowerPoint.  Below you can see a simple  timeline template for American slavery prohibitions.  

  • Civil war  
  • Emancipation Proclamation 
  • Importance of 1965 
  • Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution 
  • Juneteenth  

Timeline infographic example

This timeline would help you to create a sequential flow for your presentation. Then, if your topic is different, you can prepare another format. So, structuring a presentation is so important to hold your audience. 

The sequence should be simple and logical, allowing the viewer to keep up with them and take away key points. It also determines how much interaction you want from the audience. 

One more thing to remember when planning your content is the length of your speech. 

#5 Design the Slides    

Designing and arranging slides in a flow will give the necessary support for your PowerPoint presentation. Let’s see what you should and should not include in the slides. 

Decide on the numbers of Slides

  • In the real sense, the number of slides depends on your subject and time. However, you can use 10 slides for a 20-minute presentation. That means one Slide for two minutes to account for discussion to absorb the material. (If your lecture is under two minutes per Slide, you can add more slides for a 20-minute presentation.) 

Arrange slide contents  

  • Avoid too much text. Instead of long and heavy sentences try to use brief points.
  • Follow the 6 x 6 rule . You can incorporate a maximum of 6 bullets with 6 words per bullet. 
  • Use large fonts . Ensure your text is good enough to read. You can use a font size of 36-40 for the heading and titles, and the subtext should be around 32-point font. 
  • Avoid ornate fonts . Stick to basic fonts because specialty fonts may be difficult to read. 

Make the content readable

  • Use bold, italics, and attractive colors to mark key points. 
  • Use dark backgrounds (black, blue, purple, etc.). Use a light typeface or light background (white, light blue, yellow, etc.). Or use a dark typeface for easy reading in a large room. 
  • Apply only two or three color combinations per Slide. Otherwise, it will distract viewers' attention. However, in the case of statistical diagrams, you can add more colors. For example, if you are using a pie chart with 5 or 7 distributions, you can use more colors. 
  • Try to avoid underlines because it denotes hypertexts. 

Add images clipart and graphics  

  • Use images and graphics only if  they support the content. Too many uses of these will obstruct viewers' learning. Use pictures and clipart sparingly. 
  • If a photo is essential, use simple pictures without decorations. 
  • Choose only two-dimensional graphs and data-driven charts . Avoid 3D styles since it obstructs reading accurate data. 
  • Place graphics appropriately, having accurate dimensions.

Use animations carefully 

Animations are catchy motion pictures. But they only give desired outcomes if you add them to your slides sensibly. For primary schools, animations may be essential to tell a story. But avoid using them for each Slide. Instead, you can add it for business presentations when you need a transition.

Avoid many ideas on one slide 

Cramming information into a single slide will overwhelm your audience. The learners may seem disinterested, so they will stop listening to you. 

Instead, only focus on one topic in a slide. It lets you cut off your speech about that material according to your scheduled time. 

Pay attention to slide arrangement

Flow and sequence is the soul of any presentation. So, to keep the audience's attention on the topic, follow the below order of slide arrangement. Use high-quality yet simple templates with relevant images. A common sequence may be the following:

  • Heading Slide  
  • Attention-grabber  Slide to make the audience interested in the speech and topic.  
  • Topic preview  
  • Content  
  • Transition  
  • Conclusion  
  • Q&A 

#6 Make the presentation interactive

Sometimes digital platforms have communication barriers. You can't easily understand students' body language and facial expressions. This is the reason you should come up with ways to keep the presentation interactive . 

Encourage participation from the beginning

Use separate PowerPoint slides before you start the core presentation. These slides should include a series of questions for students to answer while waiting for class to begin. You can arrange it in a quiz format.  

In the final session, consider having a question-and-answer session that includes a quiz about the topic you have covered. This session will provide an opportunity to receive feedback. You can also use QR codes to increase audience participation . QR Codes are a quick and engaging way to make your quiz more accessible, collecting feedback post the presentation, or encouraging email sign-ups.

Use quizzes polls and surveys 

Most of the teachers need clarification on where to include polls, quizzes, and surveys. Is it at the beginning, middle, or end? What we have in the beginning is what we already discussed. You can add surveys, polls, and quizzes from the middle to the end without losing the sequence and fluency. For example, if you are on the topic of climate change, you can take a class opinion poll where the student stands on climate change issues. 

#7 Practice and delivery  

Don’t read the presentation.  Rehearse the presentation with a sequential flow so that you can speak from bullet points. The text should be a hint for the presenter rather than a complete message for the students. 

Succinctly prepare and control over descriptions.  A presenter may already schedule their time allocations, so overly explaining causes stop your presentation halfway. Look at your watch when staring at each slide and control the presentation according to the prescribed time limit. 

Focus on audience.  Monitor your viewers body language and behavior rather than focusing on your slides. 

Use proper designs and diagrams. Many designs and charts are already incorporated into PowerPoint presentations. For example, if you want to display the cause-and-effect relationship between two or more items. You can use simple arrow connections or drawings showing the relationship. But if you want a professional touch, you can use a fishbone diagram to show the cause-and-effect relationship.  

PowerPoint presentation example

A few more tips for delivery   

  • Use microphones  
  • Choose clear and simple fonts 
  • Select high-contrast colors  
  • Include multiple-choice questions  
  • Use video files if necessary  

In this article, we have covered how easy it can be to create a presentation to educate learners with PowerPoint templates. The ways of using interactive components will determine their learning effectiveness. It will also make for more satisfied audiences, regardless of your subject. 

A presentation with visual aids enables the audience to understand the topic easily. It not only engages your audience but also helps the audience to recall the subject that you have discussed.

Making better powerpoint presentations.

Print Version

Baddeley and Hitch’s model of working memory.

Research about student preferences for powerpoint, resources for making better powerpoint presentations, bibliography.

We have all experienced the pain of a bad PowerPoint presentation. And even though we promise ourselves never to make the same mistakes, we can still fall prey to common design pitfalls.  The good news is that your PowerPoint presentation doesn’t have to be ordinary. By keeping in mind a few guidelines, your classroom presentations can stand above the crowd!

“It is easy to dismiss design – to relegate it to mere ornament, the prettifying of places and objects to disguise their banality. But that is a serious misunderstanding of what design is and why it matters.” Daniel Pink

One framework that can be useful when making design decisions about your PowerPoint slide design is Baddeley and Hitch’s model of working memory .

create educational presentations

As illustrated in the diagram above, the Central Executive coordinates the work of three systems by organizing the information we hear, see, and store into working memory.

The Phonological Loop deals with any auditory information. Students in a classroom are potentially listening to a variety of things: the instructor, questions from their peers, sound effects or audio from the PowerPoint presentation, and their own “inner voice.”

The Visuo-Spatial Sketchpad deals with information we see. This involves such aspects as form, color, size, space between objects, and their movement. For students this would include: the size and color of fonts, the relationship between images and text on the screen, the motion path of text animation and slide transitions, as well as any hand gestures, facial expressions, or classroom demonstrations made by the instructor.

The Episodic Buffer integrates the information across these sensory domains and communicates with long-term memory. All of these elements are being deposited into a holding tank called the “episodic buffer.” This buffer has a limited capacity and can become “overloaded” thereby, setting limits on how much information students can take in at once.

Laura Edelman and Kathleen Harring from Muhlenberg College , Allentown, Pennsylvania have developed an approach to PowerPoint design using Baddeley and Hitch’s model. During the course of their work, they conducted a survey of students at the college asking what they liked and didn’t like about their professor’s PowerPoint presentations. They discovered the following:

Characteristics students don’t like about professors’ PowerPoint slides

  • Too many words on a slide
  • Movement (slide transitions or word animations)
  • Templates with too many colors

Characteristics students like like about professors’ PowerPoint slides

  • Graphs increase understanding of content
  • Bulleted lists help them organize ideas
  • PowerPoint can help to structure lectures
  • Verbal explanations of pictures/graphs help more than written clarifications

According to Edelman and Harring, some conclusions from the research at Muhlenberg are that students learn more when:

  • material is presented in short phrases rather than full paragraphs.
  • the professor talks about the information on the slide rather than having students read it on their own.
  • relevant pictures are used. Irrelevant pictures decrease learning compared to PowerPoint slides with no picture
  • they take notes (if the professor is not talking). But if the professor is lecturing, note-taking and listening decreased learning.
  • they are given the PowerPoint slides before the class.

Advice from Edelman and Harring on leveraging the working memory with PowerPoint:

  • Leverage the working memory by dividing the information between the visual and auditory modality.  Doing this reduces the likelihood of one system becoming overloaded. For instance, spoken words with pictures are better than pictures with text, as integrating an image and narration takes less cognitive effort than integrating an image and text.
  • Minimize the opportunity for distraction by removing any irrelevant material such as music, sound effects, animations, and background images.
  • Use simple cues to direct learners to important points or content. Using text size, bolding, italics, or placing content in a highlighted or shaded text box is all that is required to convey the significance of key ideas in your presentation.
  • Don’t put every word you intend to speak on your PowerPoint slide. Instead, keep information displayed in short chunks that are easily read and comprehended.
  • One of the mostly widely accessed websites about PowerPoint design is Garr Reynolds’ blog, Presentation Zen . In his blog entry:  “ What is Good PowerPoint Design? ” Reynolds explains how to keep the slide design simple, yet not simplistic, and includes a few slide examples that he has ‘made-over’ to demonstrate how to improve its readability and effectiveness. He also includes sample slides from his own presentation about PowerPoint slide design.
  • Another presentation guru, David Paradi, author of “ The Visual Slide Revolution: Transforming Overloaded Text Slides into Persuasive Presentations ” maintains a video podcast series called “ Think Outside the Slide ” where he also demonstrates PowerPoint slide makeovers. Examples on this site are typically from the corporate perspective, but the process by which content decisions are made is still relevant for higher education. Paradi has also developed a five step method, called KWICK , that can be used as a simple guide when designing PowerPoint presentations.
  • In the video clip below, Comedian Don McMillan talks about some of the common misuses of PowerPoint in his routine called “Life After Death by PowerPoint.”

  • This article from The Chronicle of Higher Education highlights a blog moderated by Microsoft’s Doug Thomas that compiles practical PowerPoint advice gathered from presentation masters like Seth Godin , Guy Kawasaki , and Garr Reynolds .

Presentation Geeks

Educational Institution Presentations

create educational presentations

When creating an Educational Institution Presentation, it’s important that it’s tailored to the learner.

We’ve partnered colleges and universities across North America and Europe to create educational PowerPoint presentations that ensure Professors are free to focus on teaching and students have an amazingly clear and concise learning tool. Educational PowerPoint Presentations designed for students should consider a few factors…

  • Does the presentation support the learning objectives ?
  • Do the presentations follow a clear and logical flow of information, or do they jump all over the place leaving the student confused?
  • Will your college or university make the presentation available for the students to download ?
  • Alternatively, will the PowerPoint Presentation need to be small enough to share by email ?
  • Does each of the PowerPoint slides positively contribute to the student’s education in the subject matter?
  • Do the PowerPoint Presentations need to follow college or university branding ?

What does an educational institute gain from partnering with the presentation geeks.

With each new wave of high-school students arriving on college and university campuses each September keen to receive an amazing education, expectations increase. Students are more and more tech-savvy and expect their post-secondary education to follow suit. Students expect a paper-free, streaming, and download friendly school. Professors can often also receive an education in learning new ways to reach their students. As a result, the library’s are generally free of microfiche and instead filled with computers. If the wifi goes down its pandemonium. The way education is being delivered has and is ever-evolving.

Where does this leave our professors? Often times, in need of some help to develop a strategy to find a cost-effective way to modernize their presentations. For most professors we’ve had the pleasure of working with, their institution has high expectations, but lacks the support needed to update and modernize an entire subject’s worth of presentations. Here’s where we believe the Presentation Geeks can deliver some education. We’ve developed cost-effective strategies to help college and university professors upgrade their course material. Email us to get in contact, and we would be more than happy to share our secrets with you. We believe in wouldn’t be where we are without amazing professors like yourself who care about the education of their students.

"Call the Presentation Geeks"

Without a strategy to tackle numerous slides, updating hundreds of slides can feel like you’re working for free. Luckily the Presentation Geeks have worked with college and university professors, and we have developed a strategy to tackle this challenge. We work with professors to develop a customized strategy to take a student’s education to the next level. Whether we roll up our sleeves and redesign each PowerPoint presentation, or we work with our partners to create an easy-to-use PowerPoint Template, there are many ways to design professional-looking presentations while saving you time and money. We remember when the education was a professor writing on an overhead projector. School has changed quite a bit since then, but the need for education seems almost more important now than ever.

In addition to designing presentations, our team can create handouts that students can easily download, explainer motion graphics so that students can visualize processes for a well-rounded teaching approach, and more. Delivering education through a multimedia focused approach can help students grasp difficult to understand topics. Have a look at some of our samples in the education category for more information.

Create a logical flow of information

Build educational institution presentations that cater to visual learners, make it practical, what about learning and development presentations in business.

In many cases, students getting an education from a college or university will apply for a job right out of that institute. When they start their career at their new business, the learning hasn’t stopped. In fact, in most cases, their education has entered a new phase… Performance . A business Learning and Development team will be tasked with bridging gap between what the student their college or university education, and what they need to know to be a performer in their new role.

As well as working with post-secondary education, we also support Corporate Learning and Development teams by providing adult-focused learning presentations, e-learning courses, course manuals, and more. We’ve been lucky enough to work with some amazing partners, and our team has learned from some of the best. Here’s a snapshot into what makes our Educational Institution presentations, e-learning courses, and manuals amazing learning tools for college and university students as well for business.

create educational presentations

1. Create a logical flow of information

Creating a course presentation for a college or university should be focused on adult learning meaning that you need to be clear, and intentional about the Learning outcomes. By clearly laying out the education outcomes early on, it makes it clear to the student what the goals are. As the course progresses it’s important to take time layout the foundation and explaining why the topic is important. It’s unreasonable to expect that your students will be free from distractions, but by showing the learner why the topic matters, you can cut through the distraction and engage your audience. Steven Sinek calls this the “Why” behind the “what.”

Finally, throughout the course, use the outline to ensure that you stay on track. If you haven’t introduced the topic during your opening slides, the student is going to wonder how it fits into your lesson. Using the outline as a guide will help prevent the learner from getting lost in the material.

Finally, don’t forget to recap the key points. The concept of recency and latency suggests that learners are better able to recall the first and last things presented. In every educational presentation, whether it’s for a college, university, or business, there are key points that should be retained. It’s our view that these key points should occur on the early presentation slides, as well as the slides near the end. If you have a page of handouts, make sure you include these key points there as well.

2. Build educational institution presentations that cater to visual learners

Most concepts are more easily explained with a combination of words and visuals. Create a strategy to free your slides of the endless bullet points that typically crowd presentations. It’s easy to add photos, but what if you can’t find an image that helps you explain your topic? There are a few sites that offer royalty-free images. Pexels.com is one site that has a lot of royalty-free images. Google also has an image search tool that allows you to filter by image rights. There are many free images that professors can use in education-focused presentations. These are great tips for a student or college professor who’s school may not have the budget to use expensive stock images.

Another option is to…

Developing custom illustration or animation can make all the difference. Not only will a visual presentation help keep your slides engaging, but it can also actually have an impact on how well your topic is learned and retained. If you have an educational presentation that looks more like a page out of the textbook, try splitting the information into multiple slides so that you have room for presentation visuals. Our customers sometimes tell us that they don’t have the time to add more slides. Our view is that the right illustration or animation can actually help your learning realize the concept quicker, and retain the information to a higher degree, and make the education more interesting. So the question becomes… Can you really afford not to include relevant presentation visuals in your course?

create educational presentations

3. Make it practical

Creating practical learning opportunities can take time to develop, but creating an opportunity for your learner to test the new information in an active way, helps lock in the information. The shift towards practical education has helped develop a smoother transition into the workforce. Exercises will be dependent on allotted time, the concept, and the audience. Here are a couple of high-level suggestions that think area effective.

A 30-second learning check. At the end of each section insert a slide that has a single question designed to encourage the learning to apply the concept to find an answer.

A Case Study. This may be a scenario that can be worked in a group, or as individuals. Both have benefits. Group work helps people to learn from others, challenge, and defend answers. Individual work encourages the learner to work through each stage of the process. If you are a University /College Facilitator or Learning and Development Professional who needs a creative team to support your course development needs, give our team a call. At the very least we’ll have a great conversation about your project, but hopefully, we can find an opportunity to put our team to the test!
