Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We encourage faculty to use Miro when they need a collaborative online workspace in their courses. The ability to expand into an essentially endless amount of space and customize the workspace fully is appealing to faculty. It works well in classes where groups of students are working together on a project, problem, or other collaborative activity - the groups can all be working on a Miro board in their own spaces and the faculty can then move among the student groups virtually to check-in, answer questions, and provide feedback. We have used it on our own team for meetings where we have small group discussion time followed by reporting out to the whole team - it keeps everyone's work together in one place and creates a comprehensive document of all the work done by the teams.
  • Organizing the work of multiple groups in one place.
  • Providing tool and layout options to give users lots of ways to create content.
  • Intuitive interface, easy to use.
  • Navigation works well (zooming in and out, moving around a board, etc.).
  • Perhaps a built-in guide to suggest tools when a board is being made (for example, suggesting and showing post-it notes when a person adds text).
  • Not sure if this exists yet, but some sample boards on the website could be helpful.
  • Better collaboration.
  • Good visualization of the connections between content/information.
  • Adaptable to a number of academic subjects.
It's been easy for us to get started with Miro given the outstanding support for higher education uses - we had no issues getting accounts provisioned and getting faculty and students up and running with the tool. Has the team explored integrations with LMS tools (such as Canvas, Blackboard, etc.)?
Information on higher education pricing is just a bit hard to find but once a user knows the structure, it's a great arrangement. Integration with LMS tools would be great.
We used it at a recent staff retreat to conduct a number of brainstorming and planning activities. It creates a space for the kind of free-form collaboration that normally can only happen at in-person meetings. Used in conjunction with Zoom (and breakout rooms), we had an excellent strategic planning meeting and Miro facilitated that.

  • Canvas
We use both Canvas and Miro - we would love for Miro to integrate with Canvas. We have also used Padlet - it's a simpler version of Miro, a little easier to get started but not as robust.
Great for collaborative work (either live or asynchronous) - team meetings, brainstorming sessions, breakout sessions, etc. It can be helpful for planning the layout of a document, website, etc. since it has robust drawing and other artistic tools. It could become overwhelming for a very large group to work on together - I would think the max for one board would be something like 40-50 people.
