Guided walkthrough: Videos in a training site

The basis for Stream (built on SharePoint) is having video files stored in SharePoint, Microsoft Teams, & Yammer with the ability to create destinations that feature video content in your Viva Connections and SharePoint-based intranet. For more background information, see Overview of featuring videos with web parts, pages, sites, & portals.

In this article, we show you elements of an example training site inside of Microsoft Teams using Viva Connections to inspire you, and help you learn how to weave video throughout your own intranet.

Example training site

General setup

This article assumes you've already setup your intelligent intranet with SharePoint and Viva Connections. In addition, we created our "Learning" site as an associated site with our "The Landing" Hub site.

You could also just make your training site a standalone communication site if your organization isn't using Viva Connections or fully using SharePoint as your intranet yet.

After you've done that, you can use the below examples to create a training site.

Videos as curated hero elements

At the top of our training page, we are using the Hero web part to curate a set of links to important training videos for our employees.
