Looking for Virtual Backgrounds Appropriate for Education?

This collection of PNGs created by teachers is ready for teachers to add as a wallpaper whenever using a video conferencing system (like Zoom) or when recording videos for students. Whether you have students learning at home, you’re meeting 1:1 with parents who are dialing in from work, or you’re joining a meeting with your administrator, you’ll have a video background that’s designed to be appropriate for work — even if you’re at home!

How to Use a Virtual Background

The downloadable PNG files can be used with most presentation software and videoconferencing platforms, including:

  • PowerPoint
  • Zoom
  • Google Classroom
  • Google Meet
  • Microsoft Teams

And more!

Each background in this virtual background collection has the option of two files to download. The second file is an inverted image which may be required, depending on what software you are using to record your videos.

      Hi Rachel! I'm not 100% sure about Vipkid. But, these backgrounds are made available to use on a variety of platforms. So, if Vipkid gives you the option to change the background - then yes, these backgrounds can be easily used.
