A tendency to partake in bouts of knowledge-seeking; An almost obsessive "indulge(nce) (of) an interest"(Eli Dourado, "‘Binge Learning’ is Online Education’s Killer App"). This is often within a field in which one already had a strong interest, but may also include seemingly random facts or topics. Can take the form of watching a collection of videos, tutorials, seminars, listening to podcasts, or just browsing Wikipedia or Google Dictionary (now the 'define' keyword). Has some similarities to binge watching.
"I'm so tired. I was up binge learning until 2."

"No but I could tell you all about alligator bone structures.."
