The problems of representation and learning material in distance learning
are successfully solved, but development of professional skills is a problem, that
requires a solution, especially for teaching natural sciences such as Chemistry. The
article deals with issues related to the organization and implementation of
laboratory chemical experiments via distance learning. This paper covers a
classification of virtual chemical laboratory. The author proposes to use free ware
program Virtual Chemistry Laboratory teaching Chemistry. Distance learning has
the advantages that this program can be installed on a local computer and on-line.
Moreover the local version and on-line version of this software can be presented in
different languages. The paper gives examples of laboratory work. The author
studies the creation of new laboratory work in chemistry using this program.
