Frequently asked questions

Viva Learning is part of the new Microsoft Viva Employee Experience Platform. Viva Learning provides access to learning content from different sources in Microsoft Teams, including Microsoft Learn and other third-party providers, learning management systems, and organization-specific content. All Viva Learning users will be able to access the full Microsoft Learn library in the Viva Learning app, along with other Viva Learning features such as recommending and sharing learning content in Teams chats.

Customers will get access to a selection of the 125 top courses from LinkedIn Learning, as well as the full library of Microsoft Learn and Microsoft 365 trainings with Viva Learning. If they have active subscriptions with LinkedIn Learning or other learning partners, those full content libraries will also be available.

Viva Learning brings content to users wherever they are—in Teams and across the Microsoft 365 platform. With traditional learning experience platforms and learning management systems, users must go find and search for learning content on their own. By bringing it to them in the flow of their work, we’re avoiding disruptions to engagement and productivity, such as bouncing between point-solution apps.

Yes. While the central hub for Viva Learning will be in Teams, we’re also building learning experiences powered by Viva Learning into the rest of the Microsoft 365 suite. For example you’ll be able to see Viva Learning recommendations in your daily briefing email from Cortana, and learning items will show up in Microsoft Search across SharePoint and Bing for Enterprise and office.com. Watch our latest feature update video for details.
