Overall Satisfaction with Miro

As a university, we're using Miro to facilitate workshops and activities that otherwise we would execute on a face-to-face setup. We create boards with different activities in which the students (ranging from sessions with 10 to 400) can collaborate and co-create together. It's the alternative to the (prior to corona) standard education (focused more on sessions during which we make use of certain tools). For standard lectures, a slide deck is sufficient.
  • Provides the setup for specific co-creative and generative activities.
  • Facilitates collaboration between people.
  • Supports workshops and masterclasses from beginning to end (with the creative activities, as well as the presentation functionality).
  • Video calling.
  • Handling more users and content on boards (it happened during our workshops that a few times the board crashed).
  • Automatization of connection between board elements (e.g. sometimes between post-its it becomes quite burdensome to connect those one-by-one. It'd be great if we could do those in a bulk).
  • Improved productivity.
  • We needed an alternative for face-to-face sessions due to corona, and this was the perfect alternative.
  • Improved creativity.
I noticed that for some people Miro can be quite overwhelming and hard to understand at first. Even though there are a lot of tutorials people seem to get "lazy" and skip those. I think it's important to understand how to make it more understandable at first skipping that step (e.g. highlights on the first board you open on key steps and functionalities).
Similar to my previous point, it's hard for people at first to understand Miro.
It's been great. The biggest impact was due to the limitation because of Corona, and it turned out to be the perfect solution. However, I'm still a strong believer that there is nothing like a face-to-face session.

- For co-working sessions in which tools are going to be used and/or decisions are going to be made: Miro works great. We use it frequently for workshops, co-creation sessions, and masterclasses.
- For standard presentations and lectures: There are other options that work smoother.
