Abstract: 
We propose a Multi-tier Learning Support Scheme (MTLS) which enables
effective and scalable peer support in a collaborative online learning environment to address
its inherent problem of being unstructured and undirected. The structure consists of four
tiers in descendent order, namely, e-Guru, e-Experts, e-Helpers and e-Learners. At the
bottom tier, peer learners help each other with their problems. When issues and problems
arise at a lower level that cannot be satisfactorily resolved at that level, the next level is
invoked. This project looks into the "when" and "how" of "invoking the next level" as well
as pedagogical frameworks for fostering peer learning.
