Abstract:Electronic mentoring (e-Mentoring) systems are one example of e-learning systems that are beginning to be ubiquitous on the web. E-mentoring can be explained as a process where a mentee and a mentor communicate via Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) in order to solve certain problems. The paper presents the concept of e-Mentoring, in the electronic business (e-business) domain, and defines the theory of mentoring. The composition of e-mentoring using Intelligent e-Services (IeSs) is also presented. The paper proposes, firstly, the representation of e-mentoring as components of IeSs. Secondly, the model of e-mentoring as a choreographed set of IeSs and thirdly a detailed analysis of the e-mentoring domain - this includes the definition of the concepts, relations, and instances that are used in representing the e-mentoring domain.
Keywords: E-mentoring, e-services, choregraphy.
