One of the biggest groups when it comes to learning styles belongs to under the category of being visual learners. That is taking information in, retaining it, encoding it, recalling it the best when it is learned through visual means as opposed to auditory or kinesthetic.
If you’ve maybe taken a test or have just come to realize that you tend to learn better by visual methods, then you might be interested in how to optimize and what you can focus on.

Or save the audio for later, if you’d prefer:
This may be pretty obvious to you at first but having the corroborating information can help you focus and be more confident about the way you learn in the future.
The three main ways you’re pretty much going to learn the best, at least nowadays, the way things are digitized and internet-tized, is through reading, video and a combination of online training or computer-based training courses.
As far as recommendations on how best to consume this, you want to be in ultimate control and have a quick method of taking notes that give short, memorable but useful blurbs or memory joggers on the main parts of whatever video you’re taking.
It can be helpful to take the outline or Powerpoint slides that go along with the video and have those going along with the video or at least to reference later because you do need to have some repetition in how much you go over the data, like the next day, a week from now, two weeks from now.
But if you can use sources, like for video, Youtube, Khan Academy is a good example, but video training courses at UDEMY.com, also I think Lydia still does quite a bit of video training courses that are pretty well put together and affordable.
Then you have one-off specific skills that can be addressed by video courses that are obtained through Clickbank or Share-A-Sale or other, very specific what seem like internet marketer type websites that talk about specific skills that you need to learn.
Computer based trainings, there are a lot of offerings through Skillpoint and other systems, through probably where you work, especially if it’s a corporation of 1,000 or more people, you might have a lot of courses that are already available to you.
But keep it visual. Keep it reading. Get your Kindle app for your phone, get some books, get to learning, take some notes. Keep it fresh. Keep your eyes on the prize. Keep it on books, keep it on video, you’ve got it made. Congratulations on being one of the more straightforward ways of learning, as it seems like we have a lot of content that focuses on video. So you’ve got it made, you’ve got it pretty easy in finding stuff to learn.
