This lesson, “Communication Models- Past and Future” provides the necessary background to help us develop Communication “Best Practices” for our 21st Century Hyper-Connected Digital World. (Updated August 2023)
A lesson describing the evolution of communication models from a one-way linear model of Aristotle and Claude Shannon, to the Interaction and transactional model of Schramm and Berlo, to the new Iterative Fractal Model.
The Double-Helix Communication Model is a new “Fractal” based communication model that sees communication as iterative.
A comprehensive list of all the communications models we use to make better decisions and improve our lives. Updated April 2023.
This Constitutive Approach to Interpersonal Communication Studies suggests Communication can be measured by the stability of the network built.

The Ritual Model of communication suggests we communicate, not just to pass information, but more importantly, as a way to maintain our communities. The Ritual Model of Communication suggests that connecting with others is “sometimes” more important than what we might connect about. Updated April 2, 2023
Levels of Communications Goals Overview Relative to the broad subject of communication, there seem to be three levels of goals for effective communication. There could be more, perhaps 4 or 5 levels. Could pragmatic also be a level? Thus it seems reasonable...
This lesson, “History of Communication Models,” provides the necessary background to help us develop Communication “Best Practices” for our 21st Century Hyper-Connected Digital World. (Updated August 2023)
The theory was first put forth by Goffman, under the title of Frame Analysis (link to PDF of article). He put forth that people interpret what is going on around their world through their primary framework. This framework is regarded as primary as it is taken for...
Foundations of Communication Communication Models Over time, communication scholars have increasingly expanded our understanding of the communication process through the use of three models: 1.Linear Model - The oldest, most simplified model 2.Interactional Model - A...
Description of the Transmission Model of Communication, with a focus on Claude Shannon. Discussions of the components, architecture, constraints, and applications of the Transmission Model of Communication. And, how it has led to the development of the Fractal Model of Communication. Updated March 2023.
