But time wasn't mentioned. You could have knowledge or accomplishment
on the X axis and effort or work on the Y axis. Subjects with more
material to learn could be said to have a "long learning curve"; an
example of such usage can be found here:

But if the nature of the material is not particularly challenging, you
could say that a "shallow learning curve" is involved: you don't need
to think very hard about the material. Conversely, a "steep learning
curve" in the popular sense suggests more effort being expended for a
given measure of material.
