Overall Satisfaction with Miro

In the classroom, Miro allows me to collaborate with students digitally, both in on-campus and virtual courses. Prior to the pandemic, most classroom collaboration occurred via handouts, whiteboards, and other physical mediums. During the transition to remote teaching, this was no longer possible and collaboration through the university's LMS was limited. Miro allows for more robust collaboration among students and between students and instructors, as it acts as a digital whiteboard, as well as a way for students to work in smaller groups while sharing their work with the entire class.
  • Integrating text, videos, photos, and other media onto a large canvas
  • Providing space for small groups to collaborate on a larger canvas
  • The speed of moving around a large canvas, especially when it has a lot of videos embedded
  • The feeling of being overwhelmed by all of Miro's functionality
  • This question is a bit more suited for those in the private sector
  • For those teaching in higher education, Miro can cut down on time spent setting up collaboration but it does have a bit of a learning curve
I appreciate the functionality of Miro, as it offers a lot! As an instructor, it was a bit overwhelming at first but this might have also been due to the fact that I hadn't used a digital whiteboard before (such as Google Jamboard, Microsoft Whiteboard, etc). But after using it, I can tell that Miro is likely the most advanced platform of the three.
I'm not sure if this question is asking about integration in terms of third party platforms with Miro or integration in terms of adding it to your organization software list. I'm not familiar with Miro in either context.
In hybrid classrooms, Miro has allowed students physically on-campus the ability to work with those who were attending synchronously through Zoom, in a more robust way than say compared to a Google Doc. For traditional, in-person courses, the fact that the digital whiteboard "lives on" past the class meeting allows students to return to it to answer questions, finish group work, add content, etc.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Miro's feature set?


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?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Miro again?


I didn't select Miro personally, this is just the platform my university has chosen to use. But I can say that Miro is a more sophisticated and functional platform than Google Jamboard (likely because Jamboard is available freely and meant for non-enterprise use).
It has a lot of functionality when collaborating with others, especially in the classroom as a digital whiteboard and a common hub for materials (lecture slides, videos, text, URLs, etc). I could imagine it usefulness outside higher education, especially for project managers or teams in the midst of brainstorming.
