Q: How could Xanga be used within a post secondary educational/learning situation?
A: Like any other level of education Xanga satisfies a students needs for social interaction. Talking to other people on Xanga could help you solve problems or help with questions you may have. Students in college would benefit with this application because they could talk to other students in their class online. Interaction on Xanga could be used as a motivational activity by a teacher to provide information in a more interesting way then just coming to class and doing book work. Students could participate in a conversation on Xanga which could in-turn motivate them more because it would be more interesting. Xanga could also apply to cooperative learning because you could assign small groups and have them interact and share ideas on this application.
