Learning is a secondary skill in Heroes of Might and Magic III. When acquired by a hero, it increases the percentage of experience they receive by 5% per skill level in any action in which they receive an experience boost, such as victory in combat, visiting Learning Stones or seizing Treasure Chests.

Any hero can obtain Learning, and most have an equal chance of being offered the skill, though no heroes specialise in it.

The Enlightenment skill in Heroes V is a very similar, yet enhanced take on its effects.
