The attempt to implement an adaptive learning possibility in a distance learning environment by implementing automatic distancecontrol of a specially constructed laboratory object is being discussed in this paper. E.learning concept is being discussed for a longperiod in the department of Computer science of Klaipėda University. Here the term E.laboratory is being understood as a part – an environment to run distance studies. The purpose of this project was to offer a tool, which might help to start forstudent some experiments online. To implement such a possibility the distance interface to physical and virtual experiments in ane.laboratory must be created. It was decided to use free software for the implementation of this project. To do that, the following freesoftware has been used in the project: Apache HTTP server, Java VM, MySQL DBCC, PHP Hypertext preprocessor and phpMyAdminscript. The TCP protocol was used to interact between two net elements – IP address and socket. To realize agent technology incommunication by usage of sockets, the Java object oriented language has been used. The idea of creating a real object with a possibilityto control it via Internet is discussed and the implementation of such an object in the University of Klaipėda is presented. This paper isan attempt to implement adaptive learning and modeling possibilities in a distance learning environment. The main problem appears,when the idea of flexible learning environment originates. Flexible learning environment means the system able not only to present andmanage learning material, collect information about the users, give statistics on them and learning material, but even able to adapt itsbehavior to the specific learner needs that means it is able to analyze the learner. Specific needs are interpreted as individuality of eachperson, who uses the learning environment. So, it is very important to build learner’s model correct as much as possible and later modifyit during the changing stages of learning and interactions with virtual learning environment process. Usually standard learningenvironments have nothing to offer in such a case. The paper discusses the possibilities to use such an object in distance education andto add this experience to the knowledge base of e.learning adviser by studying informatics in Klaipėda University and Business Collegeof Western Lithuania. Ill. 8, bibl. 9 (in Lithuanian; summaries in Lithuanian, English, Russian).
