Communication channels, part 1

When we want to communicate something to another person, we follow a process with the following elements:

  • Sender (the one who encodes the message)
  • Channel (the medium used to communicate)
  • Message (the content)
  • Context (the situation)
  • Coding of the message (language and interpretation rules)
  • Noise (misunderstandings, missing information, or too much information at the same time)
  • Receiver (the one who decodes the message)

Here is a link to the first questionnaire which will lead you to the next item.
