The Online Composition Hub is an online space where students enrolled in courses with The Division of Continuing Education at CU Boulder can get support with their work. The Online Composition Hub is like a writing center, because our tutors can certainly help you with any kind of writing, but we can also help with other kinds of assignments that involve lots of creative thinking and design!
We take “composition” to mean work that involves words, visual images, sounds, digital tools, and much more! Our tutors can help with traditional papers or projects that involve web design, video, blogging, Prezi, PowerPoint, etc. You can come see us at any stage of the composing process: brainstorming ideas, drafting, revising, or polishing. You can even get assistance with professional materials, such as resumes, cover letters, applications, and research projects. Not an undergrad student? That’s okay! We will work with graduate students, alumni and staff, too.
Here at The Online Composition Hub, we recognize that everyone could often use a second (or third, or fourth…) pair of eyes on their work in order to achieve excellence. We are not just a remedial service and we will not edit your work for you. We will discuss and work with you, so that you can learn new strategies to covey those brilliant ideas of yours.
Sound good? Then let’s get started! All you need are a computer and an Internet connection.
You can either meet with a tutor synchronously (as in, you’re both online at the same time and talking to one another), or asynchronously (you communicate via messages but are not online at the same time). Regardless of which option you choose, our tutors will guide you and provide mini-lessons and explanations to help meet your needs. However, you need to be an active participant in the session by sharing your questions and helping us help you. We reserve the right to cancel or discontinue sessions with anyone who is disrespectful or unwilling to work collaboratively.
We look forward to working with you! Use our “how-to” tutorials above and watch the video below to become familiar with our system. Then, sign in at the bottom of the page to make an appointment!
