What’s the use of Miro for videoconferencing and online learning?

Miro Interactive Board is an irreplaceable tool for distance learning, videoconferencing, webinars or collaborative work.

Here are a few cases that Miro can handle:

  • you can have brainstorms here – collectively come up with new ideas
  • summarizing the work and set new goals, registering the tasks on the common board
  • reviewing the accomplished tasks
  • working together on a board, dividing into small teams. Everyone can draw diagrams, add templates and visualize their thoughts
  • gathering feedback in Miro is much more comfortable and entertaining than in a classical way.
