With online instructors incorporating more synchronous technologies in distant composition courses, there is perhaps a mounting tendency to perceive asynchronous methods as obsolete. Synchronous courses more easily replicate the experiences of face-to-face courses, which appeals to many composition instructors. However, by utilizing a dynamic approach that includes contributions from the college library and tutoring center, asynchronous methodologies still have a place in online composition, particularly if instructors utilizing these methodologies seek to reconceptualize modes of instruction for the online realm instead of merely recreating them. Ultimately, the collaborative dynamic of our support approach has instilled new possibilities in asynchronous online instruction, possibilities that help students grow as writers even if they are separated by stretches of transactional distance.
