Do You Really Know About Computer Mediated Communication? - Quiz

Computer-mediated communication (CMC) is a procedure in which human data interaction is done with one or more networking technology such as software, email instant messaging (IM) and mailing list servers. This quiz has been created to test your knowledge about Computer-Mediated Communication. So, let's try out the quiz. All the best!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following are types of CMC?

    • A.

      Video

    • B.

      Instant Messengers

    • C.

      Phone

    • D.

      BlueJ

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Video
    B. Instant Messengers
    Explanation
    Video and Instant Messengers are types of Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC). CMC refers to any form of communication that takes place through digital devices, such as computers or mobile phones. Video communication allows individuals to interact in real-time using audio and video, while Instant Messengers are platforms that enable text-based conversations in real-time. Phone, on the other hand, is not a type of CMC as it primarily involves voice-based communication. BlueJ is a programming environment and not related to CMC.

    What is another name for a weblog?

    • A.

      Blog

    • B.

      Blog

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Blog
    B. Blog
    Explanation
    A weblog is commonly referred to as a blog. It is an online platform where individuals or groups share their thoughts, opinions, and experiences through written posts. The term "blog" is derived from the combination of "web" and "log," indicating that it is a digital log or journal accessible on the internet. The repeated mention of "blog" and "Blog" in the answer confirms that both are alternative names for a weblog.

    Which of these are a type of audio?

    • A.

      Loud

    • B.

      Live

      Quiet

    • D.

      Pre-recorded

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Live
    D. Pre-recorded
    Explanation
    Live and pre-recorded are both types of audio. Live audio refers to sound that is being produced or broadcasted in real-time, such as a live concert or a live radio show. Pre-recorded audio, on the other hand, is sound that has been previously recorded and can be played back at a later time, such as a recorded song or a podcast episode. Loud and quiet, on the other hand, describe the volume or intensity of the audio and are not specific types of audio.

    Which of these is NOT a problem with CMC

    • A.

      Lying behaviour

    • B.

      Living in a remote place

      Inaccuate Impressions

    • D.

      Forming unhealthy relationships

    Correct Answer
    B. Living in a remote place
    Explanation
    Living in a remote place is not a problem with CMC because computer-mediated communication allows individuals to connect and communicate with others regardless of their physical location. CMC eliminates the barrier of distance, allowing people in remote areas to access information, interact with others, and participate in various online activities. Therefore, living in a remote place does not pose a problem when it comes to CMC.

    Some examples of computer-mediated communication such as e-mail and IMing illustrate that quality communication can occur online.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that computer-mediated communication, specifically through mediums like email and instant messaging, can facilitate quality communication online.

    Linear models offer the best hope for understanding the complexity of communication.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Linear models do not offer the best hope for understanding the complexity of communication. Communication is a complex process that involves various factors such as context, nonverbal cues, and individual differences. Linear models, which focus on a one-way flow of information, oversimplify the communication process by ignoring these complexities. Other models, such as transactional models, are better suited for understanding the dynamic and interactive nature of communication. Therefore, the statement is false.

It does not mention human, animal, mechanical, religious, radio, television, or any other specific form of communication. Therefore, it can be inferred that the term "communication" in this text does not include any of these mentioned options.
