In this article we analyze the possibilities to integrate into postgraduate training programs from healthcare and biotechnology learning new practices based on collaborative and interdisciplinary work using Web 2.0 tools and applications like Google Wave 2.0 and Google Apps. We designed a dynamic portal, Biowave, where students from different programs worked together to solve a problem which required the participation of students majoring in different fields of study. After the experiment we analyzed by anonymous survey results and participant observation. The project Biowave has effectively provided an innovative solution to the needs of interdisciplinary collaboration in virtual higher education. This type of interaction and collaboration has been evaluated positively by most participants to also consider its inclusion on a regular basis in their training curricula and useful for their future career. However, the design the strategies and the proposals for concrete and active role of the teacher contribute to a greater degree of student motivation and are key factors to consider in the success of the teaching-learning process
