Background. Development of free training has altered the relationship between students, teachers and learning itself. Learners are adults, and training continues throughout life. The purpose of adult education is closely associated with certain so-cio-psychological, occupational, household, personal problems or factors or condi-tions with a sufficiently clear idea about the future use of the acquired knowledge, skills and qualities. Terms of adult learning are often determined by temporal, spa-tial, household, professional (for working people) and social factors that can con-tribute to learning, but in most cases, significantly complicate or even impede the learning activities of students. Typically, adult learning occurs in short periods of in-tense training. E-Learning systems have become widespread in recent years.
Materials and methods. The analysis of literature and other sources led to formulation of scientific learning principles governing students on how to organize their training. The authors studied the features of adult learning, in direct communication with advanced training students on the basis of the Astrakhan Institute Advanced training and retraining.
Results. The researchers identified fundamental characteristics of adult learners, designed a model of learning process organization, including basic operations of di-agnosis, planning, description of learning process conditions implementation, evalu-ation, correction of the learning process, the concept of learning through the “HHH”-intelligent agents technology, as well as defined a new format for teaching and learning on the basis of transferring the real student-teacher interaction in the digital plane.
Conclusions. Using the platform (PaaS), created at the University of Control, In-formation Science and Technology - HHH University (Sydney, Australia), will in-troduce the format of digital control techniques of learning, including a capability of students to generate certain events (selection trajectory learning object, learning ma-terials, assignments, etc.) on their own when interacting with the virtual learning en-vironment.
