Mentor Program : Proposal!

Viktor Vysheslav Malkin Viktor Vysheslav Malkin
I was thinking of possible additions that may improve the Mentor/Student Program. I have no clue on the difficulties on implementing them, so they may be a little tough for the tech team. This idea came last month, and I never got around to it. Well with next month and my uncertainty with my limited internet, I sat down to write a rather large document for my students. This particular document happened to be about “Adult DVD reviews”. Since I may not be able to help my students, I do not want to leave them high and dry. So what I plan on doing is working as hard as possible to get them all set before next month as well as write a document that will help them in the future. If I am not able to get them completed, then I will suggest a few other potential mentors for them as well as give them the document.

Anyway, when working on the document, the idea crept back into my head, and just maybe it may help others. So here is my suggestion:

I propose that Mentors are able to create “Classes”, by this I mean; said Mentor will have a pre-written documents in the Mentor/Student Tab. These pre-written documents should be about explaining certain aspects of review writing, for example for toy reviews we can have documents explaining about “Sex Toy Materials” and “Sex Toy Care and Maintenance”.

So now that we have the pre-written documents, and a student is accepted. How about letting the Mentor assign them a class (assigning them a document to read). The student will then locate the document, and read it and study it.

The thing I would like to see is where we may run into tech difficulties. I would love to have a 5-10 question quiz at then end of each document, that way we know that the student as read and soaked in the knowledge. The scores will be given to the Mentor, and the Mentor can move in for a more one on one experience.

I am hoping this method does not encourage laziness from Mentors (We have some great ones so I doubt it), but I hope it is a tool for Mentor and students.

This is a very interesting idea that has great potential. I look forward to reading more on this topic. Great job Viktor!

I don't think it would encourage laziness. I think it would give a point of reference for BOTH the mentors and the students. You could say in a message, "Well, here are some common guidelines for grammar." Then when their review is grammatical disaster (which I have been BLESSED to not have yet), then you can say,"In Care and Maintenance, your grammar is really bad in the 2nd and 3rd sentences, could you please refer back to 'Grammar Rules' #s 8 and 9 and correct your mistakes?" (Which might be better than trying to explain over and over the rules for there, their, and they're)

YES! A good idea. (Although I am not a mentor. I don't know why. I just don't get around to it. I think I'd be too hard on people or something.)

A good document on materials, toy safety, compatible lubes, proper care of specific toys etc wold be great.

I love this idea, Viktor. I don't know how you have the time for everything you do!

I thought of this shortly after I had thought of being able to save our own templates. I believe I was told that the programming would be lengthy.

I love this idea too of course.

I actually have a lot of things written down for my students and as things come up, I copy and paste in what they should include. There are also online quiz hosting sites you could use if Eden is not able to help us with this

Thanks for the idea!

You can use the EdenBlog as a resource. There are some how-to's on that.

I'm not a mentor, it's something I think I'll be looking into sometime down the road, but I think this is a really good idea. A person could write up lessons and assign them to their students, and quiz them afterward to make sure they're where they need to be.

But yeah, it's probably a programming nightmare. Like ~LaUr3n~ suggested, C&Ping would create a similar sort of thing and there are probably outside resources that could be used for quizzing.
