This article is the continuation of the research published in WorldCist 2020 under the topic “L) Information technologies in education”, which describes the educational results of the implementation of Building Information Modeling (BIM) systems in an inter-university workshop. The purpose consists in a real case study in which experiences are observed and evaluated. The main objective is to encourage and improve the preparation of students in the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) and BIM methodologies. These skills that must be developed to face the transformations of the construction sector. The participants were 27 students from the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana Azcapotzalco (UAM-Azc), the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Barcelona (ETSAB) and the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura La Salle (URL). These students participated in the “1st International BIM Workshop on the Resolution of Social Projects 2020”, to carry out a preliminary project of urban equipment in Mexico City (CDMX). The activity was focused into exploring the use of virtual environments, applying the BIM methodology and bringing students closer to scenarios committed to social reality. The evaluation of the user experience was performed with a quantitative survey. The results showed a favorable adoption of BIM systems. The main contribution of the article is the validation of educational methodologies through enhanced learning with technology. This study also aims to be the first stage of academic interoperability between the universities ETSAB-UPC, La Salle URL and UAM Azc.
