The electronic mentor project has sat on the back burner at SKIL for almost 20 years because the supporting infrastructure was not in place. The current web has changed that. What keeps a universal electronic mentor now from being created is 5 missing protocols. If we had these five in hand, the large body of causal knowledge now imparted between pre-K and the end of college could be provided at very low cost to a very large community of learner's by a large collection of distributed nodes each supported by a single individual yet working together through the use of these protocols.
The"5 Protocols for Electronic Mentoring" paper was presented in Calgary Alberta Canada in 1997 AACE Conference.
2008 October I submitted a proposal to the google 10 to the 100th project to write the protocols for the electronic mentor.
