Genially has 3 different functions that add variety and interactivity. They are:

Interactive Map

You can create an interactive map using the infographic option or the interactive photo option. Take a look at some of the examples to get some ideas. You can use multiple pages for both.

1) Choose a photo to use as the background for your map. (You can have multiple pages.)

You can make buttons using Canva to navigate your map.

Creating a side bar that's in the same color as the next page can give the impression that your page is expanding.

3/15/202411:17 AM37 hours since Wendy disappeared

Interview Ronald

Try to find the Burger King.

Try to find Jack.

Jack passes out before you can ask who stabbed him. You have all of the information you're getting. It's time to act.

Who's getting arrested?

You call for an ambulance for Jack and arrest Ronald, as that's the only thing that makes sense. Forensics determines that the knife is covered in Jack's blood, and Ronald is sentenced to making happy meals in prison for the next 10-15 years. Turns out they'd been feuding for months.Wendy is never found.

The Burger King's behavior was suspicious at best, but you have a more pressing emergency on your hands on that moment. You summon an ambulance for Jack and a second police car for Ronald, who was seen stabbing Jack by multiple witnesses. Then, you go to the King's burger castle, where you are shocked to find Wendy braiding her hair, perfectly safe and unharmed. It turns out that she and the King heard Jack and Ronald had scheduled some serious business. so they conspired to frame them for her murder and run off with the insurance payout. Also, the King has an unnatural number of mannequins around his home.

You arrest a guy who's bleeding to death, so naturally, he dies in your car. His murderer, the guy in the clown outfit (duh), runs off and is never found. Wendy is never found, either. You are fired for incompetence and sued by the Society of Spherical Heads.

He's been a cranky clown ever since Jack left him for... I can't remember her name, but that guy has a thing for redheads.

How will you be today?

What can you tell me about Ronald?

I don't like to spread rumors, but I've heardshe's a bit of a hussy.

What can you tell me about Wendy?

Jack's out of the box again.

Why were you hiding?

Are you bleeding?

What do you know about Wendy?

What's your relationship with Ronald McDonald?




I hate redheads.

It's ketchup.

The burger hustle stops for no crime.

Did you see anything suspicious?

Why are you holding a knife?

I saw the Burger King carrying a mannequin with red hair.

Is that blood?

Bada ba ba ba!

You can change the direction of your animations, slow them down, and use a timer to display them.

Choose a circle frame. Dragging a picture over it will put it in the frame.
