The following is a proposal for collaboration between universities with the aim to improve curricula that require laboratory activities. A methodology is suggested to implement an innovative educational project involving the exchange of laboratory activities. The exchange of laboratory activities can be carried out on different levels of interaction, requiring different levels of complexity in setting up the activities. A first experience was carried out in the area of machine design. Google+ was the chosen social network. A Google+ community was used to share academic material (notes, videos, activity guides, etc.) and the activity itself was carried out using Google Hangouts. The survey administered at the end showed the students' satisfaction with the experience.
