Genially is a Supported audience participation and content creation tool for creating interactive experiences for your students.


Genially is a tool for creating a variety of engaging, interactive learning content for your students. Learning objects you can create with Genially include:

  • Presentations
  • Infographics
  • Gamified learning objects
  • Interactive images
  • Video presentations
  • Training materials

Generally speaking, you can create an account in Genially, use a library of templates to create the learning item you need, and then share a Genially link in Aula or some other way with your learners.

As an example, check out this interactive presentation on blended learning created/curated by Mark Anthoney using Genially:

The Genially team put together this tutorial/overview of the tool and how you can use it in your teaching and learning:

Can I use it?

This tool is marked as Supported in the Teaching and Learning Ecosystem document, meaning while it may not integrate perfectly with Aula and may or may not use Single Sign on, it’s generally available to staff for teaching and learning. While some faculties or campuses may have purchased their own licences for the product, all staff should at least be able to use this tool in a limited capacity without needing a paid account.

If you’re not sure how to get started, you can contact the Learning Enhancement Team to find out more.
