*We’re thrilled to unveil our rebranded product – LMS365 is now Learn365, under our new company name, Zensai. Same great product, fresh new name! Enjoy the article and know that all references to LMS365 still refer to the same exceptional product you know and love, now under the new name Learn365.

With the launch of Microsoft Viva Learning API, a wealth of new opportunities for learning and development has been introduced and with the appropriate Learning Management System (LMS), Viva Learning should be seen as a complement to an improved learning strategy. We are delighted to announce that our Chief Product Officer, Flemming Goldbach, has been invited to speak at this year’s Microsoft Inspire. For LMS365, this integration is one more step in our ongoing strategy to ensure that we leverage the full power of Microsoft 365 services and improve learning through LMS365.

Watch the recording here.

Aarhus, Denmark, July 12, 2022 – As LMS365 participates at Microsoft Inspire 2022, Flemming Goldbach will share more about how the Viva Learning API launch augments an existing LMS by creating one larger portal to transforms the learning experience. Naturally, this leads to a lot of questions regarding how a relationship between an LMS and Viva Learning means for the future of learning and development. Join Microsoft Inspire 2022 to dive into this interesting topic with us!

LMS365 access Viva Learning APIs

Microsoft presents Viva Learning as a tool for empowering learners to thrive through learning in the flow of work. As a Microsoft preferred solution, LMS365 was selected together with a customer, to be part of the private preview for Viva Learning APIs. This has allowed LMS365 and Microsoft to ensure that LMS365 could provide integration with Viva Learning at the moment Viva Learning APIs were launched. This additional feature can further support individuals within an organization to further empower and democratize learning in their flow of work.  In many ways, Viva Learning is a direct response to the “real-life” scenarios that we’ve all been put in over the past year in which there’s been rapid change and no one – not learning and development, not human resources, no one – has been able to come up with a structured training program that’s agile enough to respond to sudden work-from-home needs or other dynamic changes to the work environment. 

“The LMS is really where critical things like compliance and professional development happens. We do not, absolutely, mean to replace the LMS. We are not going to be in a position to have the same level of specificity that an LMS can offer. Microsoft Viva interacts and interoperates with the LMS to give people the ability to view and search their entire learning catalog right within Teams.”

LMS365 and Viva learning – a seamless learning experience

As the first LMS to embrace Teams as a platform for learning, we are proud to be included in the first wave of integration with Viva Learning. With the great reshuffle and the rise of hybrid work, a need is quickly arising for structured and effective aspects e.g. digital onboarding. Thankfully, LMS365 is designed to deliver exactly this. With the help of Viva Learning, this solution can become more broadly available. This combination will be a great benefit for many organizations who wish to leverage learning strategically to compensate for e.g. the great reshuffle.  

Based on this, we are happy to share that the initial testing of the LMS365 and Viva Learning integration is now successfully completed. This means that, when the Viva Learning API becomes publicly available, you will be able to feature LMS365 courses and training plans in Viva Learning. LMS365 will be included in the list of available content providers for your Viva Learning application. When enabled, the LMS365 courses and training plans will be shown in cards, side by side with other learning content you choose to display in Viva Learning, branded for a seamless learning experience.
