Business communication technology gets the audience to pay more attention than they might otherwise. People tend to pay more attention if electronics are involved.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
