less lecture. More practice.

Welcome to the Flipped Communication Classroom.


The only thing more difficult than studying argumentation, is teaching it. Instructors face a number of different formats, and an infinite number of approaches. Traditional publishing companies do not design content to handle the variety of lessons, topics, concepts, and exercises that the modern argumentation course offers. Protocommunications is an attempt to fix that. We craft entire courses around content that individual instructors select. If the content doesn’t exist, we make it. We attempt to keep up with the ways that current events add to debate topics. With experienced instructors, and former competitors, Protocommunications seeks to celebrate all forms of debate learning and practice.

enhancing the course experience

As a group of college instructors, coaches, and former speech and debate competitors, we use the courses we create to improve our own classrooms and the deliver the best course experience for our students.

For Instructors

  • We offer support for every facet of course design: curriculum, learning management systems, assignments, grading, and more.
  • We support the ‘Flipped Classroom’ approach to standard debate lessons. Instructors that use our content create class time which focuses on practice and engagement rather than lecture.
  • We can create any lesson on any topic appropriate to argumentation instruction.
  • We cover the fundamental concepts, so instructors can speak on ideas unique to the topics they feel are most interesting.

For Students

  • We simplify, and visually represent concepts that are otherwise scrawled on a whiteboard and crammed into a single class session.
  • We provide uniform, contiguous lessons that are referenced and organized together to build on a linear foundation, rather than a patchwork instructional approach.
  • We craft modular lessons that can be watched or re-watched at any pace for any learning style.
  • We create supplementary instructional material. After a missed lesson, or just a difficult lesson, instructors can point students to Debatesensei is a resource for extra help


For Programs

  • We offer an extensive catalog of material can be tailored to fulfill the Course Outline Requirements of any public speaking, argumentation, or forensics course
  • We build and refine our content from years of experience in the classroom teaching the same fundamental lessons
  • We supplement or replace textbooks with engaging, trackable, interactive online lessons and quizzes at a fraction of the price of most textbooks
  • We are actively supporting several classes around California, allowing instructors to double their number of debate rounds

Our goal is to improve the classroom experience of every student and instructor, but we are only serving a limited number of programs at a time. This allows us to offer special attention to those classes interested in working with us as we continue to grow.
