How do others organise their information for rote learning and study?
This is a very broad question in an attempt to learn new and better ways to organise and summarise information in preparation for rote learning of technical information. Any ideas are welcome.
Looking to summarise the taxonomy of a bunch of viruses, lifecycles, diseases and symptomatology . This would of course involve the construction of a phylogenetic tree (of sorts) with detailed notes to the sides of nodes. Any flash card mechanism or memory / memorisation techniques would be useful. There is a lot of information so am looking for extensibility.
So rather than print out notes I am thinking it may be wiser to work from an “information map”, in the form of a mind map, with easy scalability (size adjustment) of objects and text preferably whilst still being searchable.
Some starter information points are:
- whether LibreOffice is suitable for such a task and suggestions on how to achieve this.
- any other software others may use for this purpose. No online apps please.
- how do you/others organise large sets of information for rote learning and academic study?
- example document or image to show concept
