Comments on Miro in 2021

“Highly useful for virtual collaboration.” Chet Stevenson, Instructional Design Manager, USA

“Powerful shared whiteboarding.” Brian Mulligan, Head of Online Learning Innovation, Ireland

“Collaborate with fellows on a sticky board. Endless sized sharing files and thoughts. Works around the globe, and exportable for reporting if you want. Great for workshops and trainings related to workshops. It replaces powerpoint with great ease.” Hein B A de Jong, Trainer, Netherlands

“Miro is brilliant for creating wireframe models, project planning, and running workshops. It’s also a brilliant tool for students to use and curate an online portfolio of their work or brainstorm for a group project.” Lee Lewis, Senior Digital Learning Coordinator, UK

“Miro helps us map out ideas and show connections between them. It’s also a standard collaboration tool in many industries so some of our module teams like to use not only to share their own ideas but also to build students’ employability skills.” OU Learning Design Team, UK

“It needs a bit of getting used to, but once you get the hang of it; it add great value to online collaboration sessions.” Jos Berden, Blended Learning Professional, Netherlands

“Miro is an online collaborative whiteboard so it’s great for mapping connections between ideas or tasks. I’ve created my own visual personal learning journey map in Miro, for example, and I also use it for mind mapping. The templates are helpful as they make it easy and quick to get ideas out of my head and into a visual format.” Dave, Vietnam
