This week's discussion question:
Describe how people create different types of information and how to select the best format to communicate the information to other people?
Information is created in a variety of ways. The message that is being communicated most often determines the type of format that is used to share the message or communicate the information.
Short formats and long formats have different characteristics and purposes and both types can be equally effective in communicating information.
Hopefully with the videos, tutorials, exercises and activities you've gained an appreciation for and an understanding of these differences.
