Actually, if you look up "sobre" in La Rae, the second meaning they provide is "acerca de", so they can be synonyms.
Having said this, I suppose the choice of one or the other is probably a regional thing. I dare say though that - at least in Spain - "aprender sobre algo" is much more common.
Let's wait for some more opinions!
