Since the mid-1990’s many online communities, or online social networks, have been created. These web applications have given millions of users new ways to communicate and share information. The social networks assembled by its users could be used as a virtual learning environment (VLE) that enhances Peer-Assisted Learning (PAL). In order to increase the usability of this VLE, the online social network can be enhanced with additional features. Facebook, a popular online social network, gives its users the ability to create their own Facebook applications using their proprietary markup language. By using this language an application can be created which harnesses most of the resources that Facebook has to offer. In order to begin populating the application’s requirements, we use the 13 different organization dimensions that make up make up PAL. After analyzing these dimensions, 18 potential features are yielded that will be considered when this application is built.
