Cognitive learning and learner’s mind processes play important roles in education. It is a process of acquiring new habits, knowledge and skills which together enable the students to do something they could not have done before. Some of the theories are bloom’s taxonomy, information processing theory and critical thinking. Students understand and remember better if they can fit their learning into a framework and are motivated to learn if that framework fits into what they understand as their ultimate goal. Here we reviewed some of the cognitive models which may support students to learn the learning content through the learning management system. In this context, the student performs the user role while using the cognitive model as a tool to learn and take part in the subject in a more effective way.
