Effective integration of technology in teaching and learning depends on many factors one of which is its ability to facilitate interactive communication. Various communication technologies such as email and discussion forums have been used for long. However, communication technologies like Wikis and Blogs enhance interaction and collaboration (Tonke, 2005) because the barrier of technological skills is overcome. To explore and experience the use of Wikis and Blogs, I facilitated a mentoring and tutoring program that partnered college students and middle school students. Time and distance hindered a group of college students' plans to obtain service learning experience in a middle school setting. The dilemma was resolved when we utilized collaborative tools of Wikis and Blogs. The college and middle school students exhibited positive attitude towards the virtual tutoring and mentoring.
