Peer 2 Peer U is a great example of how peer-to-peer learning has evolved to the internet.  Individuals are able to work together to learn topics of interest in a free, online, and open source environment.

"At P2PU, people work together to learn a particular topic by completing tasks, assessing individual and group work, and providing constructive feedback."

Another great example was through Sugata Mitra's TED talk on how kids figured out how to use a PC on their own...then taught others as well.
