Summary of each Topic:
HEARING is purely physical activity by which sound waves are sent to the brain for understanding. LISTENING refers to the psychological processes that allows us to attach meaning to the patterns of energy we “”hear”.
Listening Preconditions: • The words or other sounds used by the message source must be received by the hearer. • The listener must possess a set of meanings or referents for these sounds—the words need to make sense. Internal Elements affecting Listening: o Trying to hear in a noisy environment. o Dealing with a static-filled phone line. o Encountering people who speak too softly. Environmental Elements affecting Listening: o Individual Listening Capacity. o Thousands of messages call for our attention every day.
o Since we can listen faster than people can speak, we sometimes drift off. Noise: Refers to those sounds that are irrelevant to the conversation. Also can be the internal and environmental elements. The use or misuse of Gatekeepers: o If the message appears nonessential the gatekeeper keeps it from getting to the person. Personal Conclusion: I think that is very important to listen everybody, and donâ€™t get distracted by the environmental and internal elements that affect the listening. And we have to learn to ignore (not completely) the noise that interrupt the conversation.

Personal Conclusion: The web pages of a business have to be dynamic,
because if it is boring they can lose some of their customers. E-service can provide some benefits if itâ€™s well managed; however if it is bad managed can negatively affect the business image. The email is one-way of communication that can takes time to respond to each customer, so it is necessary to use another alternatives.
Homework a) If, in fact, the Internet can provide many more ways that devices can communicate with each other, what are some implications for customer service?
Entertainment systems could be manageable through the network and even household and office devices can be controlled via mobile phone. Third parties can build software that services those devices, interacts with them, and manages them. And in this way they can create an application that allows providing good customer service. The people can see new product announcements that involve networked devices almost daily.

There would not a personal communication. If it is a restaurant, there would not a lot of persons in there, because the people would prefer don't go out their home.

The use of the internet actually is very important, because is a perfect sales channel, etc. The online knowledge bases make it possible for customers to answer their own questions; and also the web chat allows customers and service representatives to carry on two-way communication. The E-services can improve customer relationships. Some disadvantages of the internet, it is that in some cases the people prefer personal communication; E-services can affect the business image, due to the poorly managed. The problem with Email is that it is one-way communication, and it takes time to respond to each customer.
Iâ€™m not opposite of the technology or the use of websites, but I prefer to have a personal communication, due to in some cases the internet is slow, and that makes that the improvement of my problem takes more time. I think that the use of the web can affect the image of the organization.

I hope that the third unit be more dynamic, because sometimes the class become a little bit boring.
