The role of mentor in e-learning is brought to attention, in order to support learner in e-learning. However, it is difficult to conduct appropriate support from the viewpoint of affective side, because mentors cannot work well. There are mainly two reasons; mentor’s work overload, and the less opportunities to support learners for successive learning. Learners in e-learning are required to be self-regulated learners such as making a learning plan, set the learning objective, and use suitable learning strategies. Supporting for mentoring for fostering self-regulated learner will be great helpful for mentors, in order to conduct effective mentoring. This research aims to be clear the design of mentoring-support system focused on self-regulated learning for the support of mentor.
