Select The Medium

The communicator chooses an appropriate channel to carefully and timely convey his information to the receiver. Soola, O (Op cit) explains the rationale for the choice of medium. According to him, “your choice of a medium must be based on your understanding of the audience. Of particular relevance in this regard is whether the receiver is educated or not; whether or not he can read and write, as well as his level of understanding of the language of communication. Other factors to consider include the physical distance separating the source from the receiver, as well as the nature of the message…”
