Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro is used within specific departments as an online collaboration tool. It allows us to run interactive online courses and collaborate in real-time during video conferences. It is convenient for organizing class time and allowing people to work on a problem simultaneously and virtually. It is used for brainstorming, research organization, and presentations.
  • Brainstorming around a specific topic with text and images.
  • Organizing research notes in an easy, visually-interesting way.
  • Icebreaker activities involve creating patterns, answering questions, or creating simple artworks.
  • Sometimes a menu opens over an object in a way that makes it impossible to select what you need to select to use the menu.
  • It would be nice if frames could contain frames.
  • Titles of charts should be able to be formatted (increase font size, for example).
  • Faster to transition from research to presentation.
  • Faster to engage people in collaborative projects.
  • Reduced set-up time for workshops.
I am very glad to have Miro as a tool for classes and coursework. It was pretty simple to get started using, and learning new features is intuitive. It has made collaborating online much more straightforward and has changed the way I work on ideation and research projects. I would continue using it even if work returned to fully in-person.
There was initially some confusion getting my account set up with the school's account, but once I was in the full version of the program, it has been very easy to use. It is easy to share boards and pull them up during virtual meetings. It fits well into our online courses.
Miro makes it simple to collaborate with others in real-time with remote workers and people in multiple locations. It has made it possible for us to collaborate with people in multiple states and even different countries so that we could generate creative, original work. It makes it easy to work in a non-linear, free-flowing way so that ideas can expand and move in different directions.

Besides Google Suite products, I have not used other live collaboration platforms like Miro. I like the "infinite whiteboard" style of Miro, which makes it very easy to expand ideas and create connections in a non-linear way. I know there are other products out there like Miro, but I would not seek them out.
Miro is great for collaborating and for individual projects. It makes it easy for people to work together online, and it is great for organizing and planning research projects that may unfold in a non-linear fashion. There is a bit of a learning curve to become fully comfortable with the program, but enough is accessible straight away that it can be used without a lot of preparation or training.
