Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We use Miro as a tool for architecture students to present their work digitally. We do parallel video calls, and miro allows the teachers to draw corrections, make sketches, or add other input into the student's presentation. The board allows students to also easily see their peer's work and look at the images for as long as they would like, as opposed to a screen-share digital presentation. The timer feature is also helpful to keep everything on schedule, since sometimes we have around 60 students presenting in one day.
  • easy upload of images and websites (with thumbnail)
  • multi-page pdf upload extremely helpful
  • easy formatting and adjustment of objects
  • "bring everyone to me" feature also very helpful
  • when the board is full, sometimes miro can drag or stop functioning
  • sometimes images remain blurry and will not load
  • sharing / editing options are somewhat difficult to learn
  • improved communication
  • it's easy to keep a timeline of progress on a board
  • reduced time spent on pdf preperation
It seems as though, with large amounts of images the board can become totally unusable. However, it is unclear when or why exactly this happens. If there could be a warning when the board has too much data on it, that would help us to better divide tasks or delete extra data while keeping the board working.
The basics of Miro are simple and self-explanatory. I have had little trouble introducing this tool to probably 200 students now.
We have had meetings with up to 80 participants using Miro at once, from over 9 different countries. It's been a great tool to use to connect people from all over the world.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Did Miro live up to sales and marketing promises?

Did implementation of Miro go as expected?


Would you buy Miro again?


I haven't used any other online whiteboard as extensively as Miro, so I cannot compare. However, I think it is innovative to other sharing platforms like dropbox, google drive, or Pinterest. Miro allows people to collaboratively collect information, easily add website thumbnails, texts, sketches, etc for overall seamless communication of ideas
Miro works really well to collect ideas or to share projects. It can even be used as an exhibition space. However, a Miro board can easily get messy if there is not a moderator making sure the board has a structure for other participants to add into. It also takes a little bit of learning to get used to, so it is most appropriate for collaboration by groups that will use it together multiple times.
