Thanks Raven and Miranda. It gets better with practise. Taking visual notes is very much like learning a new language. It has it’s own vocabulary. I can say from experience that it’s not something you can learn fluently overnight. Keep at it and you will eventually get better. The most important thing when listening to live video lectures is to focus and listen for just the key ideas or information that is most relevant to you. If you can put those ideas down, they will serve as anchors for other points that were discussed during the video. You can always fill those in later.
