Introduction to Viva Learning 

Geared at making teamwork better, Microsoft Viva is split into four modules: Connections, Insights, Learning, and Topics. Microsoft Viva Learning empowers employees with formal and informal learning when and where it’s needed, making it easier for people to learn while working.

What is Viva Learning? 

Gain new skills and contribute to the ongoing success of your organisation with opportunities provided by Viva Learning. It will aggregate lessons from sources around the web that your teams are already familiar with, like LinkedIn Learning, Microsoft Learn, and Coursera. 


Individuals will be able to organise and share lessons as they would with any other type of content, in Teams chats, channels, and tabs, which they are already using to collaborate every day.

With Viva Learning, managers and team leaders will be able to assign courses to certain individuals, promoting a culture of learning and growth across the company.
