Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I use Miro in the classes I teach with my undergraduate students. I also use Miro for brainstorming during research team meetings or team meetings with community groups I'm involved in.
  • Mindmap.
  • Facilitate collaborative brainstorming.
  • Engage students.
  • I wish the mindmap tool allowed branches in all four directions, instead of either vertical or horizontal. Otherwise, it's perfect. I love Miro!
  • Increased student engagement.
  • Increased productivity in the project design stage.
I just use Miro individually in my role as a graduate student and instructor, I'm not sure if anyone else in my university uses it.
I've never had any issues with Miro integration, although I don't use it with other platforms, just on my internet browser.
Miro has been great for my social justice organizing work that is done distanced with participants across the country. Miro helps create a sense of "energy" and connection in the interaction, as if we were all physically together, which is often absent in remote meetings.

I use Google Jamboard sometimes for simpler projects or meetings with shorter timelines, as it has fewer features and so can keep things more straightforward if we don't have as much time to play around with different capabilities.
I use Miro when doing brainstorming or mind mapping exercises in class with my students or when they are working on collaborative projects. I also use Miro for developing diagrams for theories or outlines for papers for my research. Miro is less appropriate when the material we are working with is more basic, or when I have limited time with a group (as it usually takes 10 minutes for people to get situated and figure out how to use the app-- sometimes longer if it is an older audience less experienced with technology).
