Add other content providers for Microsoft Viva Learning

A growing set of learning content providers are available through Viva Learning. This set may change at any time as more providers join or change their status with the program.

Some learning sources will be enabled by default and will be available without a premium Viva Learning license. These learning sources include:

  • LinkedIn Learning select 125 courses
  • Microsoft Learn
  • Microsoft 365 Training

Third-party content sources are not enabled by default. To enable these sources, you will need to add them in the Microsoft 365 admin center and follow the specific instructions shown in the following table.


You'll need a Premium license to connect external content sources, with the exception of the select LinkedIn Learning free courses. Learn more about licensing.
