Abstract

In this paper, I will outline the emergence of telementoring as a result of the innovation of Internet technologies. A review of the literature will be provided on traditional face-to-face mentoring and the basis for telementoring. In this introduction, I will highlight the origins, definition, purpose and context of mentoring relationships. Then I will outline some misconceptions of mentoring, by reaffirming them with the actual role of mentors and protégés in mentoring relationships. Also, I will highlight some of the benefits as well as the difficulties mentors and protégés usually experience in mentoring relationships. I will provide an overview of the history of telementoring, the types of telementoring programs, the changed roles of mentors and protégés as a result of the nature of the medium, the benefits and difficulties of telementoring relationships, and finally the impacts of telementoring on society.
