Genially addictive!

As a teacher, I use Genially in class and it helps me a lot. I will list what helps me and what I discovered by implementing: -create teaching resources -I capture students' attention using Genially interactive images -I did the planning on the platform and it was a faster process than in the physical format. -I organize myself easier -these are escape games from which they start and challenge the students to solve various tasks -I created worksheets with digital completion, etc.

PROS

Genially it is extremely easy to use, it has a beautiful interface and many features, but I love that it is interactive.

CONS

There are no things I don't like. Genially is too good to find something.

Best Content Creation Tool Hands-Down

PROS

As a Digital Learning Coach in the K-12 environment, Genially is my go-to any time I create content. Spending a little bit of time exploring the tool should make it obvious why. There is simply no other platform out there that can deliver this level of sleek, professional, engaging results with such a minimal time commitment and no special skills necessary. Every time I present using Genially, the general audience consensus is "WOW" every single time, and I always have people asking what tool I used. While Genially is great in many ways, I think the best thing it offers is the sheer number of customizable templates. There are literally hundreds, many of them free, and that number is constantly growing. Speaking of free, the free version of Genially is more than sufficient for someone just trying it out, unlike some other tools where the free version is so limited you are forced to pay just to use it properly. I use Genially so often and recommend it to so many people that I was invited to be a Genially Ambassador, which has provided me the opportunity to get to know some of the people working for the company. Every single one of them has been fantastic. Professional, talented, hardworking, passionate, kind, and with a growth mindset that constantly drives them to make Genially better and better. When you have the best team, you're going to deliver the best results, and Genially has most definitely figured that out.

CONS

The only area of improvement I can think of is one I know Genially is already addressing, and that is a lack of real-time collaboration. At the present time, only one person can be working in a Genially at a time. However, I have heard that Genially plans to release the RTC feature within the next month or two, so this concern will soon be a moot point.

Vendor Response

Hi James, Thank you for your 5 star review! We are happy to know that your audience is always amazed by the content you create with Genially. Our templates are a great way to achieve great results while using very little time. We are always listening to our community's suggestions on templates and adding more options to fit different uses. Regarding real-time collaboration, it is a feature in the works that will be released this year. Stay tuned! We are very thankful to have your support as an Ambassador and hope you can continue creating amazing content with Genially.

Not accommodating customer service

PROS

The tool has a lot of features and seems to have a diverse set for many purposes.

CONS

When I forgot to quit my subscription just a few days ago, they refused to give me a partially refund and pointed out, that I agreed their terms and conditions. I am not used to this kind of customer service in such a high price level software, so I would really be careful with this company.

Vendor Response

Hi Mario, I'm sorry you are unhappy with the customer service you received. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide refunds to clients who cancel after the renewal period.

I really love Genially

Genially saved me and helped during distance learning classes. I managed to organize the whole class with the offered or my own templates. Great possibilities for embedding various contents, interesting animations and interactive elements kept the attention of my students.

PROS

Genially has very attractive templates. I work at the school and I can always offer new interesting contents to my students. Learning and practicing is a joy and a challenge for them. They love quizzes and the Escape room, learn easily with presentations and enjoy exploring interactive images. With Genially, complete classes can be organized with all the necessary facilities. It's easy to insert pictures, music and videos. Animation of objects gives dynamism, prolongs attention and arouses children's curiosity. I love Genially because I can create my own templates, and it is possible to download individual parts from already created templates. I like the large selection of backgrounds for the site. I like that it's easy to copy and delete objects or pages.

CONS

The only downside is that I don’t have feedback on the success of the quiz tasks solved. I solve this problem by embedding (example) Google Forms on the page. Sharing templates is easy, but it would be good if it was possible to automatically generate a QR code in the tool itself.

Reason for choosing Genially

Rich Media Library, a large selection of different types of templates, the ability to embed different content and ease of sharing and access.

Vendor Response

Hi Ksenija, Thank you for your 5 star review! We are glad that Genially can help you organize and create your class material, so that you can build great contents for your students. The templates are very easy to use and it is great to see that you have discovered the many ways in which you can use and combine our templates, as well as create templates of your own. Regarding the tracking of the completion of your creations, we have recently released SCORM downloads, so you can track the progress of completion via an LMS. Your feedback is greatly appreciated! There are some external tools that allow you to generate QR codes, however we will keep it in mind as a suggestion for future additions. We hope you can continue using Genially while discovering new ways of creating animated and interactive content!
