An Online Writing Center

In his book Room 109, Richard Kent sets up a collegesque writing center in his high school and starts a by-invitation class for skilled student writers to tutor stuggling ones.

Our composition class at the college pairs with students in Fleming, New York, and Fort Collins to offer students feedback on their writing.

Could these two ideas be melded? Is there research showing benefit for an Advanced Composition class helping students in Basic Composition edit their work? Is an online writing center as effective as one that helps students face-to-face? Which are students more likely to use?
