The 21st century demands leaders with an array of personal competencies in addition to professional knowledge in order to address the world’s coming needs adequately. To produce these leaders, the teaching–learning models of universities must evolve, their infrastructures must be re-engineered, and the professors’ roles must adapt to these needs. One of the actions undertaken in this regard consists of making audiovisual equipment and media become supplementary elements of the teacher’s educational work, thus ensuring the rational use of the media. This work shows how to use a new trend of information technology and communications by using smart TVs for self-rehabilitation. This low-energy-consuming solution as part of the educational process provides useful technical aspects, and our outline provides some other ideas for incorporating this technology into the teaching–learning process. We propose a rehabilitation training system attached to a Smart TV using a device with IoT sensors to create a good home environment for those who need treatment of rehabilitation for hand injuries. At the same time, we used this approach in our project to engage engineering students to solve a real-world problem or answer a complex question in the area of public health. In this paper, we also report the results of this work-in-process.
