Overall Satisfaction with Miro

We have been using Miro for about a year across UAL. We have found Miro to be a flexible system that has been used effectively with staff and students. It is easy to pick up and use, which has made Miro a useful tool for collaborative learning.
  • Collaborative learning
  • Brainstorming and planning
  • Storyboarding
  • Miro Works well on tablets, find it hard to use with a mouse
  • Would be good to easily lock down backgrounds and boxes
  • ALthough the templates are great, some more specific ones for storyboarding would be great
  • Miro is great but tends to be used in the same way, it would be good to have examples of other innovative use, either from Miro or from other users
  • it would be good to use Miro across the whole institution but is too costly so we have to be careful where it's implemented
I wasn't involved with the initial implementation, but from what I have read it's quite complicated and maybe for large institutions like ours, it would be nice if this was simpler. It was implemented smoothly, it just took us a bit of time to work out exactly how best we can utilize the system and what the parameters are
I have given a five as I wasn't part of the integration process. We can log in with our University email address, which works fine, however, I'm unaware of how far the integration goes.
Miro has been invaluable as a collaborative tool, it has made it easy to work online on projects with everyone able to participate effectively. The ability to continue on the board after the initial session is really useful. It's easy to pick up and is being used for a number of different things, from Storyboarding and collaborative sessions through to individual brainstorming activities

We did some initial testing on Stormboard, We found that Miro had many more features and we also had brand awareness from the design school for Miro that helped with the initial use
Moodle, Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365), WordPress
We have had a great experience using Miro for collaborative learning and creating a space that staff and students can use during an online session and later. The staff has also used Miro effectively as a collaborative quiz tool, where students interact with each other and create really interesting artifacts.
