This study explores how a democratic form of teaching would change the practice of online tutorial. It addresses a possibility of applying democratic form of teaching in an online tutorial at a distance education setting. Democratic form of teaching is a forum for democratic efforts to make the school a center of learning about democracy through a democratic process. Democratic teaching inspires a learning process that is based on democratic values, namely respect for the individual to uphold justice, thereby implementing equality of opportunity across the diversity of students enrolled in the course. In practice, the learners should be positioned as human beings; they should be respected for their ability and given the opportunity to develop their potential. The study concludes that democratic teaching required an open atmosphere, trust and genuine mutual respect in its teaching and learning processes. In order to do so, it needed to avoid a rigid learning environment full of tension loaded with commands and instructions that make students become passive, listless, bored and disengaged.
