    I am in the last of my coursework for my PhD in Organizational Management. My school is completely on line so mentoring and human guidance is very absent from my education curricula. Students are required to post weekly discussions and respond to at least two posts of another student. This has proven to be very beneficial from a mentoring as well as mentoree perspective. There is always an opportunity to learn or teach as long as one is open to it, and although many go unnoticed the benefits are reaped. It is all about the greater good and sharing information and experiences so that the body of knowledge can expand!
