A medium through which a message is transmitted to its intended audience, such as print media or

broadcast (electronic) media.
To determine the appropriate communication channel, identify the people you want to
communicate with, research how they obtain information, consider the complexity of the message
you want to communicate, calculate the cost of communicating and decide whether you want the
communication to be interactive
Following are the types of communication
Face-to-Face Communication: The oldest and only technology-free method of communication
discussed is face to face. This consists of two or more people, in close proximity with one other,
conveying their message to each other, through the use of vocalization and body language.
Letter Writing: Letter writing, in the context of this project, is the process of physically writing
a message on a piece of paper, and then delivering it to somebody else to read.
Telephones: The telephone was created to simulate face to face communication over long
distances, through sound. telephones function by allowing the user to, first, activate or turn on the
device, then dial the number of party they wish to reach, wait until that party answers their phone,
and then simply talk into the mouth piece while listening to the ear piece. Telephones are also in
the process of being replaced by cell phones and e-communication.

Like face-to-face and telephone conversation. videoconferencing has high information richness because Receivers and Senders can see or hear beyond just the words—they can see the Sender’s body language or hear the tone of their voice.Channels vary in their information richness. Information-rich channels convey more nonverbal information. .
