Abstract: Online blogs or forums may create an asynchronous learning environment during a tutorial process. AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a college preparatory program to assist those who are in the middle level and want the extra support to perform well in school and attend a four-year college. AVID students are required to participate in tutorials by asking higher-level questions. Many questions during the face-to-face sessions are math questions, which leads to lack of help in other core subjects. In this paper students performed two online tutorial sessions by using Ning. Students were required to provide two thoughtful responses to their classmates post. After implementation students determined whether the online tutorial session is effective compared to the face-to-face tutorial sessions in a written reflection. The results of the reflection indicated that students and tutors thought the online process was effective with limitations. The results of the reflection and issues are thoroughly discussed in this paper.
