Overall Satisfaction with Miro
Only particular people within the organisation are using Miro - largely those involved with education and training delivery. We are using Miro as a tool for education and training. We set up our training content and activities within a board and guide participants through activities. It helps keep training sessions streamlined as participants only have to access one platform and allows work to be saved and reviewed in future sessions.
- Limitless space for creating slides and activities.
- Allows participant engagement with the materials.
- Easy to link other resources into the session.
- Straightforward to invite participants to access the board.
- Randomly moving pieces in the board! Happens every time and is super annoying!
- The random appearance of lines when clicking from one place to another.
- Participants sometimes get lost on the board and have trouble finding where they are.
- How do you save a board ?- difficult to find and navigate between my different boards.
- Not sure I can be definite about this question.
- Miro has helped us in providing the services we would normally provide.
- It has facilitated the way we have run a recent project, worth $30,000.
Not sure I understand this question - ease of integrating what? We do provide links to resources within Miro boards - would you call this integration?
A recent project based around the use of Miro involved me (in Melbourne), my colleague (in Sydney) and allowed us to work directly with our clients (based in Canberra, Adelaide, Melbourne, and Brisbane), throughout a series of design workshops. It meant we could share ideas and responses to questions with each other and rebuild constructs that were useful to the client.

Would you buy Miro again?
We use Miro because it has so much functionality in one space. We can add our slides, design our activities and run our evaluation all within one board. It makes it very simple to guide participants through a workshop and prevents them from getting lost between slides and other platforms. We've also found it essential for having clients able to access - we work a lot with the government and they cannot access e.g. Google or they only use Microsoft Teams or they can't use the same programs that we use. Miro seems to allow access by everyone.
We have found Miro a fantastic tool for training - it replaces Google Slides, Google Docs, lists of resources, emailed timetables - everything can be included in the one board. It does require a certain level of competency through in users - if our participants have some experience with Miro, the session goes well. If they have no previous experience, we spend too much time teaching them how to use it!
