Distance, e-education supported by technological development have enhanced educational processes by combining achievements from various scientific fields. This techno-educational enhancement has happened within the last decade. Virtual learning has grown in popularity as a new way of learning that gives preference to learn in convenient time and places, using specially prepared learning materials. The progression of technological developments implies the rise of user demands. It also aspires to look for flexible, but qualitative, training and learning ways. One of the outcomes is adaptive and intelligent learning environments that show to become a common tool used for virtual learning. This paper focuses on the key feature elements of adaptive learning environments (ALE), also researching about intelligent agents and their behaviour in ALEs. The method to provide individual learning syllabus according student knowledge in rational way is proposed. It is based on latent semantic indexing algorithm and is featured with an ability to update syllabus according individual learning outcomes of the student. This is yet another tool in a teacher's tool box. The description of results obtained during the exploration of proposed method is presented as well.
