Overall Satisfaction with Miro

During Covid19, we used Miro for online learning mostly. It replaced whiteboards, papers or brainstorms sessions. I later started using it to prepare my classes and organize files with my colleagues and my students (Miro is excellent for visually organizing files, previewing documents, etc...). Before Miro, one of the major problems I had with other tools was that they were too limited in what you could do with them. Jamboard, for instance, works more like PowerPoint or A4 papers, not allowing you to play with limitless board size. However, our students in graphic design enjoyed Miro right away as it is pretty close to Adobe illustrator in terms of endless boards. Before Miro, I found it very difficult to peer review or critique students' works online. Miro is effortless, for that matter, and for photographers, it is an excellent tool for sequencing or preparing a book. Moreover, many of my students adopt it among themselves for their projects without being told to do so. They, for instance, create boards for managing their degree show, creating sub-boards for each task (design, PR, etc...), they use it to vote on decisions, brainstorm, and reflect on their practice.
  • preview files, editing files
  • visualising each other cursor, following the presenter
  • Connecting points and making brainstorms effortlessly
  • Feedbacks, comments
  • more design options. maybe some colour schemes?
  • Better collaboration among students online (and they are still using it even after the campus opened)
  • My module feels more organized, i created a board where I put all content for my class there, and students can add documents too. Most students have positive feedbacks about it.
I do not have any insights about it.
It's a bit difficult for some new users, it needs a really good plan and initiation for catching up with older users.
We used Miro primarily for teaching during Covid. It changed our online teaching considerably from students being more active in their learning. I still use it in the classroom after COVID as a way to keep trace, organizing files or for asynchronous learning.

Would you buy Miro again?


Miro has much more functions, it is limitless in size of the board and has better functions and integration
Very well suited for: - Feedback practices with students, especially reviewing photographs, commenting work in progress - Organizing documents, managing tasks in a small group - Brainstorming sessions or collaborative workshops Not well suited for: - Reflective Visual Journal: When students upload too much content, it is difficult to read, takes a bit of time to load and new users gets confused quickly - Complicated boards for new users: Several of my colleagues got confused really quickly when they come to my more sophisticated boards.
