Problem based learning (PBL) is a learning approach which involves students actively use their knowledge to solve the real life problems. In a PBL model, students discuss the problem given in a small group and work together to solve the problem then share the results to others. This paper discusses on the difficulties in applying the approach of problem based learning activities in online tutorial. The study was conducted at the UT course tutorial activities on Environmental Chemistry subject, involving 22 students of 2013.2 test period, and 12 students at 2014.1 test period. The indicators used for problem based learning were the students’ ability in 1) participating in the on-line tutorial discussion 2) understanding the topic, raising the topics of discussion, and delevering and sharing their point of views, 3) analyzing the argument in high thinking level. Data was obtained based on the students’ activity at on-line tutorial activity, then analyzed into qualitative descriptive. Results showed: 1) the on-line tutorial discussion in a small group did not run well, due to the difficulty of the internet access 2). Not many students were able to develop nor deliver their thought in the discussion forum, 3). Not many students were able to think at a high level, both in discussion and in task completion.
