Telementoring Research Paper - http://mentor.creighton.edu/htm/telement.htm
An Examination of the Potential for an Educational Network, David J. Wighton, Ph.D. Research Coordinator Education Technology Centre of B. C. May, 1993.

Abstract:

This paper is a report on a number of explorations that have been conducted into the potential use of telementoring within an educational telecommunications network. First, a description of the teacher mentoring role will be given, the word -telementoring will be defined, and the initial idea of electronic mentoring that provided the stimulus for the paper will be described. This will be followed by a review of the mentoring literature that has some applicability to that idea. The final part of the paper will outline some of the lessons from other types of mentoring programs that could be applied to a telementoring program within an educational telecommunications network.
