Microsoft has announced that Viva Learning is available in public preview in Microsoft Teams starting today. The Viva Learning app had previously been available in the form of a private preview since February. It is an enterprise learning platform that brings together first and third-party training resources to help employees learn and grow.
“The Viva Learning app for Microsoft Teams is a central hub for learning where people can discover, share, assign, and learn from best-in-class content libraries across the organization—including LinkedIn Learning, Microsoft Learn, third-party content providers, and an organization’s own custom content—to help teams and individuals to make learning a natural part of their day,” the company explained.
Viva Learning will be available as a tab in Microsoft Teams channels, and it allows employees to search for the training content in the learning library to share with their colleagues. Furthermore, the Viva Learning app enables managers to assign courses to employees or track their completion status and helps business leaders improve the skills of their employees for creating an agile work environment.
Keep in mind that Viva Learning is still a work in progress and the preview version of the app still lacks some features that will be delivered in the final product. Microsoft noted that the app will get additional features and integrations with new learning management systems later this year. The firm also plans to expand its availability to Education and Government customers in the coming months.
With regards to pricing, the Viva Learning app is available for all business customers with paid subscription access to Microsoft Teams. IT Admins will be able to configure it for employees in their organization by heading to the Teams Admin Center.
