This research is concentrated on the value that Internet of Things (IoT) can add to the education process, by using it in development of online virtual laboratories, which is a major requirement for any education system, in order to be qualitative and competitive. Practical experimentation is possible even with distance learning approach and today students may have access to a multitude of teaching resources, including IoT services used for various real world experiments. This is possible due to low costs and high performance of new electronic modules, on one hand, and the development of many high scalable web services, which permits data processing and communication over the Internet, on the other hand. The paper also presents an example of using IoT, by connecting an Arduino platform with the Xively web service, in order to read and display data received from a temperature sensor.
