  According to Berlos’s SMCR, the encoder creates the Source (where the message originates) that starts with a certain attitude and knowledge, deciding on a specific social system and knowing the audience/culture.  The Message from the encoder is consist of the content, elements, treatment, structure, and the code of ethics. On the receiving end, the Decoder, as stated in Berlos’s model, is known as the Channel. The channel is selected for hearing, seeing, touching, smelling, and tasting.  Also, the Receiver is reviewing the message from the sender and in the end will consider or interpret the Source. You must take in to account the limitations of communication.  The feedback from the Audience, any distractions on the receivers end, as well as, thinking, understanding, and analyzing.     What is the Role of the Sender and Receiver in E-Communication today? Have you ever asked yourself when sending a message through e-communication; Is the person receiving and reviewing the message going to understand the information?  The encoders’ role is to relay a message accurately and be knowledgeable on the information being sent.  On the receiving end, the decoder is the person who receives the message and decodes it. E-Communication is very touchy. Many people interpret messages in different ways. For example, Your company sends out an email to all employees, “Do to recent issues, all employees must report to the supervisors when going to lunch. Thank you for your understanding.” Would you take offense? Would you wonder what “recent issues” caused this change?   As the decoder, a message can be impetrated several ways. Clear and accurate communication is the key when sending and receiving messages. How would you decide what kind of communication tool to use? Determining the type of communication tool strongly depends on the audience.  One would consider age, gender; race, religion, etc., as the all play a vital role in choosing the correct tool.  By doing your homework, you can understand the intended audience and gain the knowledge needed to communicate the message.  What do you consider when selecting an E-Communication Channel Professional versus Social Environments

Whether it’s through instant message, email, text, social media, seminars, face-to-face, etc… Selecting the proper e-communication channel depends on who the intended audience/decoder is.  It could even be a face-to-face meeting or conversation (Introduction to Communication, 2015, p 8).  It all depends on whom and how many people the encoder is trying to reach and what that message is trying to inform the audience/receiver.  What do you anticipate from the Decoders Response

It is no secret that in today’s society, everyone anticipates a speedy response. It all depends on how the message was sent and the context of the message.  If the encoder sends the message via instant message, then they would expect an immediate response from the decoder. If the message is sent via email, it could take a few days to receive a response. The response time also depends on the importance of the message. Whether we are the encoder or decoder, deciding on the appropriate communication tools and which e-communication channel to use, being on the same level will help the communication take place properly. For example, if the communication skills on the encoder side are good then the decoder should equally have good listening skills. We can improve our skills with the proper research, practice, listening to others, and patience, thus, achieve our goals as Speech Communicators.   Reference
