HootCourse
http://hootcourse.com
A HootCourse is an online classroom. And then some.
Instead of cumbersome forums or complicated lesson-plan formats, HootCourse uses a combination of the most popular social networks and blogging platforms to provide a new type of online classroom.
HootCourses are built on tweets and status updates in real-time.
There's no particular structure to them, at least no more than a classroom with chairs and a blackboard; they're a simple construct that lets a teacher and pupil interact.
Most online learning solutions have the same problem. They try to be a virtual teacher instead of a virtual classroom.
HootCourse sticks solely to the role of classroom. It's a virtual environment built to facilitate the free-flowing dialogue of an educational setting. Like a real-world classroom, it leaves teaching materials and format to the teacher.
Students and teachers can sign in with either Facebook or Twitter.

BuddySchool

BuddySchool, a platform for people who want to study or tutor online.
In BuddySchool teachers and students meet to study online.
The possibilites during the lesson are limitless. Usually the teacher and student would be talking on Internet communicators (Skype, MS Messanger etc.), but they could also be chatting, co-browsing or even meeting face-to-face. BuddySchool makes no restrictions, only keeps track of the time and informs them when it is up.
BuddySchool helps teachers and students meet, schedule lessons and take care of payments, but during the actual lesson they use IM (Instant Messaging) and Internet telephony (or VoIP: Voice over IP) applications like Skype, MS Messenger or Google Talk. There is no need to install any additional software beyond that.
Payments for lessons are carried out between the teacher and student, using the method of their choice (PayPal, Credit Card, Bank transfer etc.). BuddySchool helps to keep track of all payments by a system of invoicing.
