Overall Satisfaction with Miro

I use Miro during my virtual classes, especially for group works, activities that require thinking and developing something. For example, I have used it to create conceptual maps (to deepen my students' understanding of a topic), but also to put some hints and inputs in a structured way, for students then to complete the map/process/diagrams. And I have even used it to organize an online poster conference (during the pandemic, when in class conferences were not possible), where posters were uploaded and students
  • Variety of templates that help with creating and developing innovative activities and meaningful contributions from participants
  • Sometimes it would be beneficial to be able to copy the whole template into a new one, and by the whole template, I mean including the additions done to a basic/default one
  • Overcoming the barriers related to online teaching, guaranteeing a high level of interaction despite being in a virtual environment
  • Making learning more fun and keeping the engagement level high
  • Widening participation from students who tend not to participate/contribute verbally
A quick video tutorial about all the available features and potentiality would help,
I guess it depends more on the virtual platform I use for online classes, MS Teams, in the sense that it would be good for the Miro app to be integrated there (or in similar platforms) in order not to have to stop sharing my slides in order to share my screen and go to the actual Miro website/app.
As previously mentioned, it boosted the online experience. I received excellent formal and informal feedback from students about their learning experiences with this specific platform. They said it was engaging and fun and helped with a non-ideal teaching setting (100% online). I am still using it, even after resuming the classes in presence, because I believe it helps collaboration through technology, no matter the physical distance.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Did Miro live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Miro go as expected?

Would you buy Miro again?


Mentimeter and Kahoot are very good for short Q&A, or to test the knowledge of your students via quizzes, as well as to explore their opinions. Miro is useful for more in-depth activities where different people can contribute to developing/creating a product of learning/a learning outcome. It is more learner-led in the sense that gives more opportunities to the learner to interact with the platform (edit/create, etc.). And it is more versatile in terms of choice of templates for the lecturer.
Very good for activities that require critical reflection followed by the development, especially if the lecturer can help with initial hints/inputs and leaves the student to complete the remaining missing parts of the conceptual map/flow diagram and so on. I wouldn't use it for quick Q/A or when I want to test students' knowledge or opinions; in that case, I use different platforms.
