The Internet of Things (IoT) is essentially made up of a network of physical objects, capable of capturing and transmitting data. It is an extension of the current Internet that allows everyday objects to have computational and communication capacity via WEB. This type of technology has been used in telemedicine and patient monitoring remote systems. Thus, in this concept test, of a mixed nature, a group of students from the Bioengineering course at the Catholic University of Portugal—Regional Center of Porto, through the integration of the acquired knowledge and skills, developed an electronic device, controlled by a microcontroller from the arduino type, for monitoring vital signs, heart rate and oximeter, with the SOLL platform, Smart Objects Linked to Learnings, serving as an interface WEB. From the data collected, it appears that most students did not know the tool and those who knew only a few had already used it. The students were unanimous in considering the tool versatile, innovative, intuitive, with potential for the practical and useful application of the contents taught in the classroom. In short, the IoT has potential to promote active learning of an interdisciplinary nature that promotes teamwork, project development and scientific communication skills in higher education.
