The Virtual Instrument is usually understood as real computer controlled measurement system. The control of the physical instrument, which exists in the background of the computer, may be performed using the computer keyboard, mouse and display. Wider understanding of the virtual instrumentations includes also a variety of the computer based applications for the processes modeling, instrument simulations or execution animations of the measuring systems. Presented paper try to point out to an example of using a Virtual Instrument tool (created with LabView software) in the teaching process in Sciences area. The use of LabView in a Physics lessons was illustrated by "RLC series circuit" experiment. The application was made in the frame of the three years Socrates-Comenius 2.1 project "VccSSe - Virtual Community Collaborating Space for Science Education" (no. 128989-CP-1-2006-1-RO-Comenius-C21), co-funded by the European Commission, Education and Training: School Education: Socrates: Comenius. © 2009.
