Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I use Miro in a variety of ways. I use it to teach students (as both a presentation and collaboration tool), to present to teachers (data, training, housing resources, and research on a topic of practice). I also use it to build conceptual frameworks for my own research. It addresses the issue of how to store things visually and enable online collaboration during CVD lockdowns.
  • Visual representation of complex ideas.
  • Collaboration on projects.
  • Ease of use.
  • Ability to bring together various other things (files, clips, pictures).
  • File types it supports.
  • Ability to lock aspects of the board to prevent collaborators from stuffing them up as editors.
  • Enabled teacher development in the use of software to collaborate.
  • Creation of frameworks to be used - time reduction.
  • Accountability to complete the work (visible engagement).
The sign-up process for educators is a little too time-consuming and complicated for some.
See previous comment.
Miro was invaluable during CVD lockdown as a tool to conduct professional learning that uses collaboration.

Did Miro live up to sales and marketing promises?

Did implementation of Miro go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Miro again?

Yes

Miro is well suited to model use on how to use online collaboration with teachers (for students). It is less suited to this as the users who you wish to edit can move or delete things accidentally. It allows the creation of complicated projects and creative space for ideation.
