Our site is an educational web site that takes visitors on a journey of discovery through the fascinating world of communication. It is about the development of verbal and non-verbal communication through human history, covering prehistoric cave drawings and hieroglyphics; the more sophisticated semaphore, telegraph, telephone, radio, and television; and today's advanced computer and satellite based systems. It shows how developments in the field of communication have affected our lives and how they have continuously been changing the world in which we live. We have included a wide range of topics such as varieties of human language, the development of writing, paper and printing, photocopying, desktop publishing; couriers and postal services, and electric and electronic transmission. Illustrations, photographs, and diagrams reinforce the instructional character of the site.
We have included an exciting and informative section on inventors in the field of communication whose inventions have changed the course of history. The mass media section shows how journalism and mass publication has made its mark on our society through written and electronic expression and how the internet and its massive information highway are reshaping knowledge and communication. In a truly interactive framework, we have included a quiz and a survey to enhance the learning experience. We will encourage all types of contributions from visitors so that the site will continue to grow with use. The site will be a valuable online resource not only for teachers and students but also for everyone interested in communication.
