Abstract: Increasing numbers of on-line venues for learning and engagement are emerging as virtual spaces become more accessible and commonplace. As analysts, we seek ways of talking about these spaces through a common language for understanding their organization and the nature of the interactions within them. This paper draws on a framework presented by Mynatt, et al., (1998) which provides a lens for viewing on-line community as a set of affordances. I apply this framework in a virtual educational setting, and conclude with a discussion of its applicability as a lens through which to analyze virtual community.
