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.

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.

Prepare your presentation with Microsoft 365 Copilot
You’ve been asked to give a new presentation and Microsoft 365 Copilot can help! For this example, we’ll imagine you’re a professional landscaper and you’ve been asked to present to a local community organization about tulips.
Start from an outline
Often the best way to prepare a new presentation is to create an outline of what you plan to cover. For our example we’ll start with Copilot in OneNote.
Navigate to the section where you want your presentation outline to live.
Create a new page for your presentation.
Start Copilot from the ribbon.
The Copilot pane will open on the right, waiting for your prompt. You can use natural language, and the more details you can give Copilot the better your results will be.
You could just enter:
Create an outline for a 45-minute presentation on tulips.
But you’ll get better results if you do a couple more things.
Give it context
Start by telling it what role you want Copilot to play in creating this content.
Act as a professional landscaper. Create an outline for a 45-minute presentation on tulips.
By setting that context first, you let the AI know how you want the content framed.
Give it more details
Try adding to your prompt details about what you want it to cover, and who the audience is.
Act as a professional landscaper speaking to a group of interested community members. Create an outline for a 45-minute presentation on tulips. Include sections on the history of the flower, different types, best time to plant, care and feeding.
Now when you run the prompt, you’ll get a more detailed response.
Tip: Don’t be afraid to play around with the specifics – add or remove details, change the order, try different contexts.
If you’re happy (or mostly happy) with the draft outline Copilot has created, select the copy button in the Copilot pane and paste the outline onto your OneNote page.
Review and edit
Now you’ll want to add your own touches. Go through the outline and add or remove things as you see fit.
Tip: OneNote excels as a research tool. Don’t be afraid to add your own notes, copy in content from websites, or add other supporting materials to the page that will be helpful as you prepare your presentation.
Create your handout
When you’re happy with your outline it’s time to create some handouts for the audience. Select your outline in OneNote and copy it to the clipboard. Then open Microsoft Word to a new, blank, document.
When Word opens the Copilot dialog should appear. Let’s give it a prompt:
Act as a professional landscaper creating an article for an audience of interested community members. Make it clear, simple, and engaging. Base it off this outline: <paste outline from OneNote>.
Copilot will draft an article for you based on your presentation outline.
Save to OneDrive
Before you spend much time editing your handout, save it to OneDrive. This will make sure your work is saved as you go and it’s key to our final step in preparing the presentation.
Go through the article and make sure that what Copilot added is what you wanted. Edit for voice and tone and make sure any facts it’s added are accurate. Remove anything you don’t want and add anything it missed.
Tip: You can ask Copilot to add more content if you like. Place the cursor where you want that content to be, then click the Copilot button on the ribbon. Tell it what you want. Add two paragraphs about other plants that look good with tulips.
Go to the Insert tab, select Pictures , and then Online Pictures . Search for “Tulips” and select one or more nice images to make your article more appealing.
Create the slide deck
Now it’s time to let Copilot in PowerPoint get to work.
Open PowerPoint to a new, blank, deck.
Select Copilot from the ribbon
In the prompt box type Create from followed by a / .
Note: It may take a few minutes for a new file to appear in the file picker. If you don't see the file even when you start typing the file name, wait a few minutes then try again.
Copilot in PowerPoint will build a draft presentation based on your Word document, complete with images and speaker notes.
As always, it’s important that you review the draft Copilot has created. Add any additional slides or information you want, remove any that you don’t. Add your own expertise where appropriate.
If you want to change any of the images Copilot has added just right-click the image and select Change picture .
Tip: Practice with Speaker Coach When you’re happy with the presentation you might want to practice it once or twice with Speaker Coach before the big day. For more information see Rehearse your slide show with Speaker Coach.
Give it a try!
Next time you have a presentation to create let Microsoft 365 Copilot help you at each step of the way.

12 Best Presentation Websites Alternatives to PowerPoint in 2023
What is a presentation website?
Presentation websites are applications created to present information as a slide show. Slideshows are presentations that comprise charts, images, videos, and the standard text. They ensure that data is displayed clearly, summarized, and readable to the audience.
Slideshows work best when presented on a projector or a big screen. Intermittently, some users might print out slide shows as documents, but this is ill-suited for that purpose.
Any presentation tool must have three fundamental functions:
- A text editor: to input the contents of the presentation.
- An import function: to insert and manipulate images and other content.
- A slide-show or presenter mode: that displays the content in a nice, formatted way.
Slide shows often consist of a combination of text, video, images and charts. Their primary function is displaying clear, readable and summarized data to an audience.
Most presentations are shared and presented on a larger screen or through a digital projector. In rare occasions, slide presentations are printed out as a replacement for text documents, but this is a really inefficient way to review data, that Garr Reynolds calls ‘ PresDocs ’ (Garr Reynolds is the author of Presentation Zen, one of the most important go-to reference for successful presentations).
Related Read: What Makes Up the Best Presentation Templates?
What makes the best presentation website?
When looking for the best presentation apps, there is a need to consider not just pitch decks but also school lectures, religious sermons, and adverts. Therefore, an excellent presentation app should be affordable, have enough sharing and collaboration options, have a range of pre-built templates, and be flexible.
Visualization in presentations
A presentation without visual aids can be very boring. It's hard to remember things if they are just words on a page or screen. But with visuals, people retain information much better. So, ensure you have some great images to help your audience understand what you're talking about.
Consider using infographics if you want to add some spice to your presentations. Infographics are visually appealing ways to present complex information in a simple way. They can include charts, graphs, maps, diagrams, timelines, etc. Many online tools are available to create them, including Piktochart , Visually, and Canva .
Presentation or visualization names of websites
Presentation websites allow you to create amazing presentations through the use of web technologies.
There are many cases when you might need to create a presentation for a particular purpose. Creating a presentation on PowerPoint is easy, but that doesn't mean it's the best option. That's why we'll talk about how to create a presentation without PowerPoint and how to get the best out of these presentation website alternatives.
However, there exist today, numerous applications, software, and websites that can help create stunning designs and art for presentations other than PowerPoint. From Slidebean to Google Slides, there are more than enough presentation apps to help you. No matter your tastes, needs, and specifications, there is always one that fits your bill. Read on to find out more.
What makes a great PowerPoint Alternative?

How do I create a presentation without PowerPoint?
Numerous alternatives to PowerPoint are on the Internet. The issue is not about creating a presentation without PowerPoint but getting that presentation tool or software that can help achieve your goal.

What can I use instead of PowerPoint for free?
Here are some presentation tools you can make use of instead of PowerPoint;
WPS Office boasts functionality and a well-designed, along with offline document capabilities. Sometimes accused of having very similar features to Microsoft Office, users can efficiently work on PowerPoint files. It also offers many templates. However, collaboration might be a bit stressful.
WPS Office is available on Android, Web Windows, iOS, Linux, and macOS.
If there is one thing Canva has, it is templates. Canva makes PowerPoint look simple with a vast array of templates for every specification. If you have a problem with making decisions, do not use Canva.
However, that is its Achilles heel; many people find themselves scrolling for so long. Not all templates are free but, it helps narrow down your options.
- Bonus Tool: InVideo
InVideo is considered a cloud-based online video editing tool with the feature of creating slideshow videos. it contains a huge selection of slideshow templates, stock footage, photos, and music to make great slideshow videos without a watermark.

Show Websites in PowerPoint
Mar 18, 2020 | Articles , DataPoint , DataPoint Real-time Screens , Evergreen
There are tools available to show websites on PowerPoint slides like LiveWeb and LiveSlides (EDIT: website seems to be down – link removed). I’m recommending them often. You can use that to draw a web browser object on your slide, and then specify the URL to show in there. When you run your slideshow, you will see that website on a given slide. Every time the slide is shown, the website output is rebuilding and displayed again on your television screen. People often use this to grab legacy data from a reporting website or e.g. to show local weather information.

Presentation and First Light Images For NASA’s TROPICS Mission
Patrick Duran (ST11), SPoRT tropical meteorology team lead and Deputy Program Applications Lead for NASA’s TROPICS mission, gave a presentation at NASA’s Land, Atmosphere Near real-time Capability for EOS (LANCE) user working group meeting on 6/21/23. Duran gave an overview of the TROPICS mission, including an update on the constellation’s recent launch and efforts to reduce data latency from 6.5 hours to about one hour. This reduction in latency significantly broadens the applications enabled by TROPICS, especially for the LANCE user community. The presentation also detailed ongoing efforts to incorporate mission data into decision support systems at the US Navy’s Joint Typhoon Warning Center and the US National Hurricane Center, and included discussions on broadening the user community, especially to include international partners.
A few weeks later, the first light images from the TROPICS mission were revealed in a press release on 7/19/23. The imagery showed the evolution of Hurricane Adrian in the new 205-GHz microwave channel provided by TROPICS, which provides insight into the structure of deep convection in the storm. The first light images demonstrate the significant value that TROPICS provides over other microwave sensors, as the constellation provided a much higher revisit rate over the hurricane than preexisting satellites. In addition to NASA Administrator Bill Nelson and other scientists involved in the mission, Patrick Duran contributed insight on the value of TROPICS for hurricane forecasting for the official press release. The imagery and press release have been shared broadly across a wide range of media outlets.
Will McCarty, the program scientist for the TROPICS mission, presented early successes of the mission at the July SMD Monthly Status Highlight Meeting. Included in the contribution was a quote provided to Patrick Duran by National Hurricane Center (NHC) hurricane specialist, Philippe Papin, who said “TROPICS could significantly enhance our capability to better analyze the location and structure of these destructive storms in real-time.” The interest in TROPICS at such an early stage from NHC hurricane forecasters is a testament to the applications value of the mission and early engagement of the stakeholder community through the TROPICS early adopters’ program.

Previewing the future of Alexa

- LinkedIn Share

Over the last few years, we’ve often talked about how we’re living in a golden age of artificial intelligence (AI). Ideas that seemed like science fiction not so long ago are now a reality—and there’s no better example of that than Alexa. What started as a sketch on a whiteboard has evolved into an entirely new computing paradigm—one that has fundamentally changed how people across the world interact with technology in their homes. Having passed half a billion devices sold, and with tens of millions of interactions every hour, Alexa has become part of the family in millions of households. We’ve always thought of Alexa as an evolving service, and we’ve been continuously improving it since the day we introduced it in 2014. A longstanding mission has been to make a conversation with Alexa as natural as talking to another human, and with the rapid development of generative AI, what we imagined is now well within reach. Today, we’re excited to share an early preview of what the future looks like.
This is an early look at a smarter and more conversational Alexa, powered by generative AI. It’s based on a new large language model (LLM) that’s been custom-built and specifically optimized for voice interactions, and the things we know our customers love—getting real-time information, efficient smart home control, and maximizing their home entertainment. We believe this will drive the future of Alexa, enabling us to enhance five foundational capabilities:
We’ve studied a lot about conversation in the last few years, and we know that being conversational goes beyond words. In any conversation, we process tons of additional information, such as body language, knowledge of the person you’re talking with, and eye contact. To enable that with Alexa, we fused the input from the sensors in an Echo—the camera, voice input, its ability to detect presence—with AI models that can understand those non-verbal cues. We’ve also focused on reducing latency so conversations flow naturally, without pause, and responses are the right length for voice—not the equivalent of listening to paragraph after paragraph read aloud. When you ask for the latest on a trending news story, you get a succinct response with only the most relevant information. If you want to know more, you can follow-up.
2. Real-world utility
To be truly useful, Alexa has to be able to take action in the real world, which has been one of the unsolved challenges with LLMs—how to integrate APIs at scale and reliably invoke them to take the right actions. This new Alexa LLM will be connected to hundreds of thousands of real-world devices and services via APIs. It also enhances Alexa’s ability to process nuance and ambiguity—much like a person would—and intelligently take action. For example, the LLM gives you the ability to program complex Routines entirely by voice—customers can just say, “Alexa, every weeknight at 9 p.m., make an announcement that it’s bed time for the kids, dim the lights upstairs, turn on the porch light, and switch on the fan in the bedroom." Alexa will then automatically program that series of actions to take place every night at 9 p.m.
3. Personalization and context
An LLM for the home has to be personalized to you, and your family. Just as a conversation with another person would be shaped by context—such as your previous conversations or the situational context—Alexa needs to do the same. The next generation of Alexa will be able to deliver unique experiences based on the preferences you’ve shared, the services you’ve interacted with, and information about your environment. Alexa also carries over relevant context throughout conversations, in the same way that humans do all the time. People use pronouns, catchphrases, and build up context of the places, times, or scenes we talk about. Ask Alexa a question about a museum, and you’ll be able to ask a series of follow-ups about its hours, exhibits, and location without needing to restate any of the prior context, like the name or the day you plan to go.
Customers have told us time and again that they love Alexa’s personality. You don’t want a rote, robotic companion in your home, and I’d argue Alexa’s personality is one of the biggest reasons for Alexa’s broad adoption. As we’ve always said, the most boring dinner party is one where nobody has an opinion—and, with this new LLM, Alexa will have a point of view, making conversations more engaging. Alexa can tell you which movies should have won an Oscar, celebrate with you when you answer a quiz question correctly, or write an enthusiastic note for you to send to congratulate a friend on their recent graduation.
There should be no trade-off between trustworthiness and performance. Customers around the world have welcomed Alexa into their home, and to be truly useful in their daily lives, we must continue to create experiences that they both love and trust. While the integration of generative AI brings infinite new possibilities, our commitment to earning our customers’ trust will not change. As with all our products, we will design experiences to protect our customers’ privacy and security, and to give them control and transparency.
To our knowledge this is the largest integration of an LLM, real time services, and a suite of devices—and it’s not limited to a tab in a browser. And we’re just getting started—with generative AI, we’re also able to enhance a number of core components of the Alexa experience.
One of these components is how customers start an interaction with Alexa. This will build on the experience that exists today by enabling customers who choose to enroll in Visual ID to start a conversation with Alexa simply by facing the screen on an Echo Show—no wake word required. The result is the most natural conversation experience we’ve ever built. Secondly, we built a whole new conversational speech recognition (CSR) engine using large models . As humans, we often pause during conversation to gather our thoughts, or emphasize a point, and identifying those cues is incredibly hard for an AI. This new CSR engine is capable of adjusting to those common natural pauses and hesitation—enabling more flowing, natural conversation. Finally, generative AI has enabled us to enhance our text-to-speech technology, using a large transformer model to make Alexa much more expressive and attuned to conversational cues.
What this means is that Alexa will adapt to your cues and modulate its response and tone akin to human conversations. Ask Alexa if your team won, and it will respond in a joyful voice if so; if they lost, the response is more empathetic. Ask Alexa for an opinion, and the response will be more enthusiastic, as it would if a friend was sharing a point of view.
To demonstrate how far we’ve come, here’s a reminder of how Alexa sounded when we first launched:
And here is what Alexa will sound like early next year:
Combined, these enhancements will take what is already the world’s best personal AI, and make it even better. I’ve been using these new capabilities over the past few months, and it feels just as transformative as the first time I experienced talking to Alexa a decade or so ago. That’s not to say it’ll be perfect—Alexa will make mistakes—but, like it always has, the experience will continue to get better over time.
We’re at the start of a journey—a foundation that we believe will lead to a new version of Alexa powered by generative AI. We’ll continue to develop and add more capabilities as part of a free preview, which will be available to Alexa customers in the U.S. soon. We know customers will have lots of feedback, and we can’t wait to hear it.
Stay tuned for more. In the meantime, here is an early look at Alexa’s new capabilities.
