The degrees shared by different universities are gai- ning momentum lately. They allow to combine ef- forts and offer interdisciplinary degrees to students, ta- king advantage of the synergy among diverse teaching staff. However, the decentralization of students brings the challenge of maintaining quality and homogeneity of education, especially in practical sessions. For this reason, this paper proposes a teaching methodology in a subject focused on the Internet of Things (IoT). This subject is framed in an interuniversity master taught by two Spanish centers, which requires dealing with hete- rogeneous students and equipment for practices in both venues. Therefore, a common laboratory program has been developed for the students of both institutions, so that both groups perform the same laboratory sessions even if they do not have a homogeneous equipment. The practices have an eminent technical approach, in- cluding the assembly and programming of electronic circuits with Arduino and its interconnection with an IoT platform in the cloud. While the face-to-face stu- dents have access to the real hardware components, those who attend remotely do the same work through an on-line simulation platform, allowing equivalent de- velopments and a homogeneous follow-up of sessions. The proposed teaching methodology is currently in its execution phase and this paper presents its main featu- res, identifying major challenges for the coming years.
