The human brain has two channels for processing information - verbal and visual, and the processing capacity of this working memory is limited. This post explores cognitive overload, when the capacity of working memory is exceeded by the processing demands of all the information we come across, and how smart training design can manage this.

This short explainer will shed some light on what is happening behind the scenes of your learning process. Understanding this basic process can unlock a world of conscious competence to improve the way you learn.
