Overview

All communication protocols solve the problem of how to send (binary encoded) information from one place to another. This requires that the sender and receiver agree on how many bits form a proper message and how big the "chunks" of bits should be. In this lesson you will use a binary encoding of a word as a message that will be passed between you and your partner. The word will be encoded as letters that will be made of "chunks" of bits.
