Miro User Guidance

What is Miro

Miro is an online collaborative whiteboard platform that enables teams to work effectively together, from brainstorming with digital sticky notes to planning and managing agile workflows.

How do I get a Miro Account

Professional services, Academic staff and students can sign up for a free lifetime Educator licence (2 years for students) with a university email address via this link: https://miro.com/education-whiteboard/
Education plan users can take advantage of the following features:


Miro is not accessible as it does not meet the WCAG 2.1 AA accessibility standard.

If you intend to use Miro you should:
  • Consider whether an alternative approach would be more suitable.
  • Ensure participants are aware of the accessibility issues before you use it.
  • Encourage participants to let you know if the accessibility issues will prevent them from full participation.
  • Ensure that text descriptions are present for any images.

Help and Support

Please note that whilst Miro has been approved by Information Services, it is not supported by IS and given that we have no guarantee of its availability, we recommend that you do not design anything that has a critical dependency on it.

Information Services cannot resolve technical issues with Miro. However, Miro has an extensive help section which covers the basics of getting started through to troubleshooting and technical questions.

The Miro Academy provide free live and on-demand training alongside the ability to gain verified badges. A huge range of templates and use-cases can also be found in the MIROVERSE: https://miro.com/miroverse/​
