Viva Learning offers currently a good learning experience and is easily accessible in MS-Teams. The fact that it offers a lot of integrations with external content from such big platforms and that you can even connect it with an existing Learning-Management-Solution makes it a strong solution in the market. However, many companies already have solutions in place and it might be a little bit tricky to get the costs legitimated to a new solution if the old still works.

If you do not have yet a learning solution and you’re already using MS-Teams… then you should definitely consider Viva Learning.
