What a wild and crazy year! As we wind down and hopefully shut the door on distance learning (fingers crossed) for a while, we can still add a fun pop of color to our last few virtual meetings with students. These backgrounds are designed to be used during Zoom meetings, but can be added to any greenscreen application or used anywhere you can upload a JPEG file. Insert them in a Google Slide or Powerpoint and personalize with your own message! Then upload and share!
You can even record a goodbye message to your class using Zoom or a Screencasting application. Ever heard of removebg? You can snap a selfie, remove your background and then insert your photo to create a personalized backgrounds for your distance learning slide decks and resources.
Zoom Tips: Check your settings to make sure you have the "virtual background" setting. Once you've started your meeting, you can click on the video settings and "Choose Virtual Background". Click the + and upload your JPEG from your desktop (or wherever you have these files saved).

Interested in making your own Zoom backgrounds?
In Power Point or Google Slides, change your page settings to be 1920px by 1080px. Then, add your own backgrounds, clip art and text. Export the file as a JPEG or PNG image file and you are ready to upload your new virtual background. Simple as that!
