An online collaborative writing project was carried between two report writing classes from two separate institutions, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Singapore Polytechnic (SP). The aim was to test how successfully a peer-to-peer mentoring system could be established using asynchronous and synchronous communication features. The results from this pilot study were very promising and show that students were extremely motivated and produced high quality work. This leads the authors to conclude that well planned and implemented mentoring projects are possible through the electronic medium and can be quite effective.
