During the COVID-19 period, education has been required to reform and adapt to a modern, imposed paradigm in which all of its activities must be delivered in a completely digital format. As a result, in light of this pressing need, educational institutions should either repurpose existing facilities, such as learning management systems, or develop new online education options in a timely manner. In view of the above, this paper proposes an alternative educational tool over Facebook by exploiting the technology of social networking. This Facebook-based application was used as the sole platform for supporting asynchronous learning of high school students in the tutoring of mathematics during the COVID-19 lockdown. This modern educational approach through Facebook encompasses interactive software which involves an e-class environment with social characteristics, multimedia-based learning material delivery and learning activities and assessment of different types. The presented Facebook-based interactive educational software has been evaluated by school students with very encouraging results.
