Teamwork and Communication
First, choose a medium based on the media richness and complexity of the communication task.
Second, is to think about the language characteristics of the information to be communicated. Numeric, verbal and/or visual.
Third, is to consider the communication functions to be used.
A rich communication medium through which participants can engage in multiple simultaneous communication with verbal and nonverbal cues, synchronous feedback, a variety of language and inflection, and a personal focus that conveys feelings of emotion along with the informational content produces a greater sense of social presence.
Interactive feedback and simultaneous speaking and listening rather than one-way conveying of information.
Ex. Synchronous-videoconferencing, audioconferencing, instant messaging
Ex. Asynchronous-email and bulletin boards. One way communication.
