Empower your workforce with Microsoft Viva Learning: curated learning opportunities improve engagement and productivity.

Microsoft's Viva Learning platform has announced new features that enhance the growth and engagement of employees. Recently introduced at the first Viva Summit, these new learning aids aim at improving productivity and facilitating an integrated learning experience in various professional roles. Top discussions include this with Merck's Chief Learning Officer, Johann Laville, and ICF's Chief Information Officer, John George.

Viva Learning's upcoming feature, 'Academies,' are on the verge of being launched. These are specially curated, role-specific learning venues that target employees with a choice of engaging and relevant learning opportunities. Listed as a new tab in Viva's top navigation bar, 'Academies' can be configured by admins, knowledge admins, and managers to enhance the learning path and provide better access and organization to the users.

Viva Learning will also make their employee learning API and course activity API publicly available. These APIs will provide any learning system the ability to converge with the Viva Learning platform. Similarly, the Viva Learning web endpoint, another feature soon to be launched, users can access the platform directly from their browser, which will offer the same features as does Viva's Teams app.

A newly introduced Viva Learning Community is a platform where users can have access to expert-curated content, engage with professionals, and use it as a discussion forum.

Delving Into Microsoft's Viva Learning Platform

The introduction of 'Academies' aims at creating a focused learning environment for different teams. These platforms can be customized as per the team's requirements, like a 'Finance Academy' for the finance team or a 'Sales Academy' for the sales team. These academies are anticipated to be a great tool for optimized and accessible learning flow.

API integrations will make Viva Learning's platform more versatile and accessible, letting users manipulate content from their learning management system (LMS) or learning provider. This aligns with Microsoft's goal of extending their service to support continuous learning in organizations, ultimately empowering individual employees to grow.
