ENG-206HN Analysis Worksheet: MAPS (Medium, Audience, Purpose, Situation) Choose a specific form of communication (i.e., text, video, poster, audio clip, etc.) Use the following questions to analyze the communication in terms of the MAPS approach. Try to make answers as specific as possible. Communication Form of Choice TEDx Talks – 7 Ways to Make a Conversation with Anyone By Malavika Varadan Medium What medium or media does the communication take advantage of? o The medium the communicator uses is the medium of a speech and a video. This will be focusing more on the in-person speech aspect as opposed to the video. What are the strengths and limitations of the media used? o Strengths Full body language and expression. This is as personal as you can get. Everybody has their tone of voice, body language, facial expressions, and personal charisma to work with during the conversation, helping everyone better understand each person's perspective. No interruptions. You never have to worry about bad connections or dropped calls. Fluid conversations. Unlike phone calls, where people tend to interrupt one another, physical meetings usually allow for a very smooth, interactive dialogue between many participants. o Weaknesses People are everywhere. It's 2015, and people work together all around the world. It's hard--if not impossible--to get everyone you need gathered in one location at the same time. Record keeping is subjective. The only way to keep a record of the meeting is to write out notes--and that leaves room for personal interpretation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
