Microsoft Viva Learning is a part of Microsoft Viva platform for Teams and its purpose is to help employees get the information they need for their work, from training videos to PowerPoint presentations.
Since a large percentage of employees will continue to work remotely even after the pandemic is over, it’s important for managers to use tools that help employees feel part of the companies and stay connected to their colleagues.
“As the world of work changes, the next innovations in the field will focus on creativity, engagement and well-being,” says Jared Spataro, corporate vice president of Microsoft 365. “We wanted to develop a platform that would help companies create a culture of thriving and creativity with engaged employees and inspiring leaders.”
In Viva, Teams users can search and share training content in chat, creating their own “tab” on the collaboration platform to organize their content.
Microsoft Viva provides access to group analytics, LinkedIn Learning and other learning content providers. Learning content comes from a variety of sources, from Microsoft Learn and earlier mentioned LinkedIn Learning to independent vendors such as Coursera and PluralSight. Viva Learning components will also be integrated with Cornerstone OnDemand learning management systems, SAP SuccessFactors, etc.
At the moment Viva Learning is at the stage of experimental operation at the selected customers of Microsoft. The public version should appear during this year.
