Abstract: 
This study aims to identify the peer facilitation techniques that could scaffold interaction in asynchronous online discussion forums. The findings of this study suggest that scaffolding interaction in asynchronous online discussion through peer facilitation could be achieved through the use of the following five peer facilitation techniques: "showing appreciation", "considering others' viewpoints", "general invitation to contribute", "questioning" and "challenging others' points".
