Build a personal learning system with Logseq

How do you use Logseq to learn new topics and skills? That's the question the Logseq user community discussed on April 20th, 2022.

This was an audio-only session in the Discord. Therefore, no video is available.

From the video description:

Remembering everything is impossible, so we need systems to help us keep the useful bits of knowledge. Our best bet is to externalize a part of our thinking—to build a second brain. Without digital systems, you'll soon face memory overload—the overwhelm that comes from tracking processes. To learn effectively, you have to go through three stages: consume, collect, and create. For each phase, your learning system enables you to focus on the material instead of the process. In this hour-long session, we shared experiences and insights by using Logseq for learning.
