  • Having learning is not grammatical in this sentence, that is the main difference .

'Having learned' or 'having learnt' are both grammatically correct.

'Having learning' is not correct in this context, although it could be correct if 'learning' is used as a noun, meaning 'education', as in 'Having learning, she was able to master English in a few months', but it's a somewhat contrived example.

In short, the form of the passage in the link you gave contradicts the content.
