Overall Satisfaction with Miro

As a college teacher, I use Miro with my students. It is such an intuitive yet powerful for anything from general brainstorming to planning detailed projects. Starting from scratch is just as easy as using a template, which is important to me as I cannot afford to spend hours showing students how to use a tool. I also love the fact that they can start working on a board together in class, then seamlessly continue their project, each working on the same shared board from their homes. Pricing is fair, and educational pricing is always appreciated!
  • Designing a board from scratch or using a template.
  • Collaboration in real-time.
  • Asynchronous collaboration in a shared workspace.
  • None really. With recent updates, the Teams integration works well.
  • More templates are always welcome, although there are plenty already.
  • Students are more engaged in creative processes because of the freedom and flexibility the tool offer.
  • Time constraints have become less important since students can continue working outside the classroom or lab.
  • Since Miro is suitable for different steps of the creative process, there is no need to figure out several platforms.
Boards are very easy to create and share. I simply run my boards from the Miro website. I am not familiar with the possibilities for local hosting and increased security needs.
Miro is intuitive, streamlined and powerful. These are qualities that often seem contradictory in UX. I have not yet encountered situations where I was clearly lacking a feature or function, just as I have not yet encountered situations where I had to dig through a lot of documentation to understand how the platform works. It does what you need it to do, without much friction. For me, that is paramount.

Miro has a much more complete feature set than regular white board / mind map tools, yet remains affordable.
For educators in higher education, Miro is a powerful tool for synchronous and asynchronous student collaboration. It works well to get students to keep a trace of term project, from initial brainstorming through planning and even the presentation of visuals at the end of the process. If it is important to keep multiple iterations of the same project, it is important to save copies, though, since there is no easy way to roll back to a previous version of a board.
