Communications are an essential part of online instruction due to the need for stakeholders to be aware of events, dates, issues, etc. Effective communications depend on how that information is presented and disseminated. A message that sparks interest in the recipient is the best way to get your information across. How the information is delivered is also important because, if they don’t see it, they won’t be informed. Email is usually the best way to get generic information distributed and can allow for an effective presentation of the information.
