Viva Learning is an enterprise learning and training experience that acts as a one-step solution for all the learning needs of your organization. Viva Connections gives everyone a personalized destination to discover relevant news, conversations, and the tools they need to complete daily tasks. Both Viva experiences can be accessed on mobile and desktop devices in Microsoft Teams and are a part of the Microsoft Viva suite.
By mid-September, you’ll be able to integrate Viva Learning and Viva Connections experiences by using the Viva Learning card on the Viva Connections Dashboard. This new feature will enable users to track their learning assignments directly within Viva Connections dashboard. When users interact with the Viva Learning card, they’ll be able to complete learning courses within the flow of the work in Teams. The Viva Learning card will display in the Viva Connections Dashboard card toolbox even if your organization does not have a Viva Learning premium license.
