The role of virtual environment in relation with the resilience concept of has not yet been analyzed in depth. Educators cannot determine the resilience level of students as the trademark earned or inherited. But instead, they can create the educational conditions, enabling the resilience manifestation at higher level when the circumstances requires. The remote experiment, as a component brought in education by the virtual environment, are included in the present analyze, with them relevant benefits. The paper illustrates the fact that the problems, generated by the educational environment that aims at resilience education, are partly satisfied by the virtual environment qualities. Was succeeds to illustrate that the virtual environment (remote experiment) might contribute at resilience level increasing.



The work was developed at the “Center for the Valorisation and Transfer of Competence” (CVTC) from the “Transilvania” University of Brasov.
