This article discusses the educational process of higher education institution and its main elements. We prove the feasibility of using the mathematical apparatus of Е-networks for simulation of the main elements of the educational process. Proposed model of the organization and conduct of student's independent work. The conclusions about the possibility of using simulation to improve the quality of the educational process are made.
