This document presents the results of an analysis of the ways for using Blogs as a support tool for e-mentoring in higher education programs. It presents the identified advantages and disadvantages, especially in blended learning environments where mentoring is a very important task to maintain the student’s commitment and to facilitate a process that consume higher level of resources. This paper also examines the danger of repeating old practices with new media, and even more, analyses the specific characteristics of the activity of mentoring online from different points of view including the tutor, the protégé and even the entire group.
