We are all individuals with our own stories and experiences resulting in different and diverse ways of thinking and learning. That is why it is so difficult for a trainer to structure a training or eLearning in a way which fits to every learner's needs.
As a learner you might not always be able to control the way how content is being taught to you. What is under your control, though, is the way how you process this information. One very easy and effective way is to create your own mind map during or after the training.
