The project was related to communication. The task of the project was:

1. Giving a brief outline of communication. What is meant by the term? How do we communicate?

2. Give the name and picture of each medium/devices of communication. Phone, Postal mails/Snail mails, fax machines, telegraph,e-mail, cellphone, internet, Television, Radio,Hoardings, Banners, Leaflets, Cinema etc.

3. For each of such devices/mediums brief description was to be given.

4. Their specific advantages and disadvantages are to be explained in brief.

5. A conclusion is to be drawn by giving the 'Evolution and changes in the method of communication.'

Barry's Response - Good one, DD. What was the conclusion?

With the internet we see, now, more new ones over and above those listed. Most of these fall under the category - Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP). Here, voice communications, with or without video, travel over the internet.

Providers include Skype, MagicJack, FaceTime and over a hundred others listed on this page -

The main idea is to be summarized. Which can be as follows:
The mediums are meant for different purposes. Like postal mails, cellphones, telephones are suitable for personal communication and radio,TV etc are meant for public communication.
