It would depend on the context. Probably most of the time it would not alter the meaning, and everyone would understand. Personally I would use 'throughout' more often. But: 1) I learned to drive throughout the week 2) I learned to drive over the week. 1) I was learning to drive during the week. 2) implies that I learned and finished learning - possibly by passing the driving test at the end of the week.
