The preparation and use of remote experiments in the education system consists of the solutions of two, at first glance, single and independent issues. The first one, on the part of the provider – the admin-istrator of the remote real experiment, is a solution of technical design for the remote experiment and consequently its implementation. The second one, on the part of the remote experiment user, is a solu-tion of the tasks related to didactics of the application of remote experiment in the different stages of a lesson. To achieve a positive educational effect from the application of remote experiments in education, solution of didactic tasks is as important as solution of technical design of the experiment. The authors in this paper propose a procedure for making solutions, implementation and operation of remote experi-ments. They come to the conclusion according to which maintaining the long-term functionality and regular innovation of the remote experiment has the nature of the development spiral. They define the essential role of pedagogical research in relation to the application of remote experiments in education. In addition, they refer two examples of technical solution of remote experiments, in which for the con-trol and management, the programmable logic controller (PLC) is used.
