Overall Satisfaction with Miro

Miro is currently being trialed by individual users within my department to support small-group teaching and learning activities, as well as to facilitate meetings and administrative tasks. From a teaching perspective, I use Miro primarily as a virtual whiteboard when working with online classes during the lockdown period, and have continued to use it in face-to-face classes to replace worksheets and other paper-based activities.
  • Miro allows me to see what each individual student is working on at any given time, so I can provide assistance where it's most needed.
  • Miro has allowed me to convert my usual worksheets into interactive activities, and the work that students produce cannot be lost or accidentally destroyed in the way that paper-based worksheets often are.
  • Frames provide a huge amount of control over what students can and can't see, comment on, and edit. This allows me to stage my lessons the way I want to while also leaving a full visual/written record of learning for students to review afterward.
  • When sharing your screen, handwriting can lag on Miro. I tend to use the text tool to get around this.
  • The templates that Miro provides are more suited to corporate rather than educational settings. It would be nice to have school- or university-focused templates.
  • If Latex were integrated into Miro, that would be really cool.
  • increased accountability from students in class
I think it works well.
It doesn't integrate very well with Teams as users can't edit from within Teams without opening the link in a new browser window, even if they've been given edit access to the Board.
It has really helped.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Would you buy Miro again?


Miro is great for small-group activities where I want to monitor students' progress and refer to the work they have produced later on in class or during the term. It is also great for activities where I want students to work within a particular structure. It is less useful for work where you only want certain students to have access to certain parts of the board, which is a useful feature of Class Notebook in Teams for example.
