Overall Satisfaction with Miro
I use Miro to organize content within the courses that I teach. It started as a tool that I could use in combination with Zoom for the remote classes I was teaching during the height of the pandemic. However, even after moving back to in-person classes, we continue to use Miro because it has become one of the best ways to organize course content! I can create activities ahead of time and plan out the content we want to discuss during the day. Students then can interact with the course content and create their own notes in the appropriate frames. Then the students walk away with a collaboratively created document that captures our discussions. I don't think I'll stop using Miro any time soon.
- Improved ability for students to collaborate during the pandemic
- Has helped me organize the many parts of my research process and what stages they are in
- Improved communication of required project components to students
Each new release has brought substantial improvements to the product (with the exception of the loss of double-click to repeat elements being added to the board). I have been impressed with Miro's flexibility and functionality since the beginning, and I'm impressed all over again during each release.
It's super easy to create a quick board and send the link to the people in a meeting you're in. I have used it in the middle of meetings with people who have never seen it before just to be able to sketch out some quick ideas and get their feedback on them.
I love that I can collaboratively brainstorm with other people, and then I don't have to collect all of the notes and post-its and try to document them in a way that will persist but not take up space. Virtualizing the whiteboard ideation process has been a huge strength of the tool.

- MURAL (formerly Mural.ly) and Google Jamboard
I used Miro before I used MURAL or Google Jamboard, and I couldn't get into either of those tools. They were just a little too clunky and difficult to learn for me to be able to fully appreciate them. Not when I knew I could just create a Miro board instead.
Miro is very well suited for any situation where you need multiple people to plan or coordinate or make decisions in a collaborative way. It is also well suited for helping to organize design decisions. As a large canvas workspace, it's nice to be able to visualize how things have changed over time.
