Science experiments can be simulated easily using the proper software applications. The simulated experiments provide to pupils / students the opportunity to run experiments many times and at convenient time. On the other hand, the teachers can use the simulations for specific demonstrations during the theoretical lessons. Science experiments can be also presented as educational video-clips. In many Physics and Chemistry courses, real experiments are represented as digital video demonstrations.
Taking into consideration the mentioned ideas, this paper emphasizes the results on developing related learning objects that include two Socrates-Comenius platforms: “FISTE - A Future Way for In-Service Teacher Training across Europe” and “VccSSe - Virtual Community Collaborating Space for Science Education”.
Description This article emphasize the idea that educational video-clips and virtual / remote experiments represent a good option for distant education especially for understanding the fundamental of Physics and Chemistry and also for offering the possibility to conduct the experiment in some cases. However, it is mentioned that the role of the teacher / trainer / tutor remains as a key factor because it is important to imagine and design the logical succession of the experiment steps in order to guarantee an easier understanding of the physical or chemical process.

Result This result conclusion is that beside the presented methods of training, the traditional experimental methods still offer the power of the direct contact of students with the experiment and teacher which seems to be the most agreed solution by the educational decision makers.
