This paper presents a qualitative study on the reality of communication among students of Computer Science. A preliminary study indicated nine major means of communication that were predominantly used by students to converse with their colleagues. Those most eminent and therefore those that were investigated are: course platforms, the student representatives' board, e-mail, instant messaging, face-to-face meetings, meeting at university courses, mobile phones, Short Message Service, phone calls via the internet. The students' media choices were explained within the framework of the Media Synchronicity Theory, resulting in a series of practical suggestions for the choice of communications in Blended Learning situations.
