E-Mentoring Communication Process on Basic Drawing Virtual Studio Learning. The COVID-19 pandemic has urged and changed Indonesia’s entire teaching and learning process from offline to online. Meanwhile, at the tertiary level, the Visual Communication Design major must continue to carry out the learning process for technical courses such as Basic Drawing, with studio practicums carried out virtually with the E-Mentoring system. Krämer et al. (2015) stated that online learning has more time efficiency and flexibility, as well as has a social interaction that could not be found in traditional mentoring. This study examines all forms of e-mentoring communication processes on several digital media carried out by mentors and their group of students. From the results of qualitative research with focus group discussions conducted with mentors and several students, the overall e-mentoring communication process went well, and the distribution of knowledge to students was also effective. However, the study results also found several obstacles in terms of the longer mentoring time, the lack of emotional connection between e-mentoring actors, and the loss of a sense of presence in the learning atmosphere.
