Incredibly difficult to use

Murally is really inconvenient. Simple trying to edit a text box is difficult and this frustrates me when I have deadlines and the website I decide to use is horribly useless. Even paint is better. Don't even bother trying to use Murally unless you want to be really stressed.

Kids can create an eye-catching message board, complete with text, video, and images. combines social bookmarking and communication, making it an ideal format for brainstorming and group project work. You can invite other individual users or send out a board link to a group; kids have to register for the site to get access, but the system provides a fairly safe, insulated experience. Also, it's easy to use: kids who are familiar with popular sites such as Facebook should understand many of the shortcuts. Kids also can add ideas via sticky notes in a variety of colors and, with a fairly reasonable Pro subscription, chat and collaborate in real time. Kids who tend to think in a very linear way may find the design challenging, but it can be great for those who don't. Similarly, boards with a large number of users may quickly get overcrowded with ideas, but provides a generally effective method for sharing ideas -- and can give each student working on a project a chance to contribute and build off other students' suggestions.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
