Icons are schematic representations of objects, signs, actions, etc. They’re very useful for decorating your pages, representing content or commands, or for indicating that there’s some interactivity to be explored. Icons visually enrich your creations, making them more expressive.

There are tons! You’ll always find the perfect icon to represent your idea. 

Icons in the Resources section


In Shapes you’ll find lots of basic elements like squares, triangles, stars, and much more.

You can use them in your creations in a thousand different ways. For example, you can add a box to create a section within your page, turn it into a button, or combine it with other shapes to create a more complex element.

Graphs & Charts

In this section you’ll find all sorts of graphs and charts for displaying your data in a more visual and interactive way. They’re super easy to use and also allow for all kinds of edits. You can learn all about graphs in Genially here

Lines & Arrows

These resources are key for structuring your content and they can be used in many different ways.

The lines are useful for separating different sections within a page, while the arrows are useful for signaling important content, making a timeline of events, indicating the order of a sequence, highlighting an area of the page, etc.

There are lots of illustrations with which you can visually represent an action or situation, or simply decorate your genially.

The illustrations work like images, meaning you can distort them, rotate them, or replace them.


The scenes are illustrations that tell a story. Using a scene allows you to represent a moment in a very expressive way. As we all know, a picture’s worth a thousand words.

Scenes in the Resources section


In this section you’ll find blank maps of countries, continents, or the world. They’re ideal for creating teaching resources or showing locations, among other uses.

You can make them in just a few clicks, by simply adding hotspots or buttons with the interactivity you want.

Silhouettes are outlines that represent very diverse concepts, like nature, sports, professions, etc. They’re really versatile and very useful for making your content more visual.
