Understand how to configure your Microsoft 365 Tenant for Microsoft Viva Learning

During Microsoft Ignite there was a session called OD370 – Introducing Microsoft Viva Learning. In this session, it provided details in how to configure Microsoft Viva Learning.

I am now going to run over this session and provide the details described in the video.

Whats is the Learning App?

The Learning App is an extension to Microsoft Teams which allows the content from various sources into a single panel of glass. By default, you will be able to access the following locations.

Important Note

Microsoft has not release much information around the licencing for LinkedIn Learning with the Learning App as present.
LinkedIn Learning
Microsoft Learn
Microsoft 365 Training

You will also be able to include the following 3rd parties at launch of the Learning App

Coursera
edX
Pluralsight
Skillsoft

You will also be able to pull SharePoint content via a connector into the Microsoft Team Learning App.

Configuring the Learning App

At present, you are unable to configure the Learning App as it’s not in public preview or general availability. However, this doesn’t stop me from explaining the steps required.

Launch you Microsoft 365 Admin Center
Go to Integrated apps under Settings
Under Services will be “Learning App”

Once you selected the Learning App you will be able to enable or disable the content sources.

Publishing the Learning App

In preparation for the launch of the Learning App, you are unable to publish the app centrally from Microsoft Teams Admin Centre. This will be made available at the launch of this solution.

But you can install Learning app manually to your Teams Client today.

Heres a blog post I did about the Insight apps which is available today, you can follow the same process to publish the Learning (when available) to your organisation.
