Dialogue between the tutor and the tutee is the corner stone of a successful writing center. While designing an online writing tutorials, it is important that the site emulates the face-to-face tutorials as closely as possible. We present the workings of a custom-built platform for synchronous online writing tutorials that will service about 60 colleges and universities across New York State. The essential feature of this tutorial component is the Editing Box that the student uses to upload, edit and share documents. Both the tutor and the student see the same screen as the system refreshes frequently; all chat and editing will seem like they are happening in real time. The Editing Box has the MS Word Track Changes features. A Dialogue Box next to the Editing Box allows the tutor and the student to engage in a conversation. An optional skype facility is possible to allow the student and tutor to talk directly to each other.
