Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Internet of Things (IoT) is widely considered as the next step towards a digital society, where objects and people are interconnected and interact through communication networks. IoT not only has a huge social impact, but can also support employability and boost the competitiveness of companies. It is widely considered as one of the most important key drivers for the implementation of the so-called Industry 4.0 and for the digital transformation of the companies. Relevant impacts of this technology are expected in a wide range of sectors.

The rapid diffusion of IoT technologies has created an important educational challenge, namely the need to train a large number of professionals able to design and manage a quickly-evolving and complex ecosystem. Thus, an important research effort is being done in innovative technologies (simulators, virtual and remote labs, mobile apps, robotics, e-learning platforms, gamification, learning analytics, etc.) applied to innovative teaching practices.

This Special Issue focuses on all the technologies involved in improving the teaching and learning process of some of the IoT-related topics such as sensors, devices, protocols, platforms, services or data analysis, among others.
