What’s new in Viva Learning – May 2022

This post has been republished via RSS; it originally appeared at: New blog articles in Microsoft Tech Community.

We’re excited to share a set of new features and functionality for Viva Learning. Our development teams are hard at work delivering on our roadmap so we can help individuals upskill and grow, and organizations to build a culture of learning. Everything listed below is available today.  


If you have any questions or ideas for future capability, please drop them into the comments.  


Let’s get to the good stuff! 


Add to calendar 

Easily prioritize time for learning by adding learning objects as time blocks on your Outlook and Teams calendar. Viva Learning intelligently suggests a time slot that fits the duration of the learning object chosen and matches with free time on your calendar. The add to calendar feature can be initiated from a course detail page, or a course thumbnail from the Home or My Learning tabs.  



Surface learning content in Microsoft Search 

Find learning objects across Microsoft 365 endpoints like Office.com, SharePoint.com, and Bing.com. Use the ‘Learning’ tab within search results to filter to results powered by Viva Learning.  



Indicator for content that requires a subscription 

We heard your feedback! A visual indicator (key icon) is now included in the UI to clarify which

content is free to users, and which requires a separate subscription in order to consume. 



In-line playback for LinkedIn Learning content on mobile  

LinkedIn Learning content now plays natively imbedded in the Teams mobile app experience with Viva Learning. This allows mobile users to complete the learning journey from discovery, to selection, to consumption without leaving Teams.
