After analyzing the possibilities of Moodle surroundings, there was a biology course established for the students of the 9-12th classes, called „From the cell to the organism“. There was also prepared a theoretical material for studying, as well as illustrations, models and examples, individual tasks and tests based on the Lithuanian common programmes of secondary schools and educational standards. The distant course of biology in virtual surroundings is meant to cause an interest in learning process, understanding and enriching the knowledge, as well as self educating and achieving high results. It may be used by biology teachers, explaining the new material, revising and summarizing. Analyzing the course material students may choose the appropriate time and study individually enriching their knowledge and doing individual tasks consulting the teacher.
