Fun with Zoom: How to Set Your Virtual Background

In the midst of worldwide lock-downs and near-global social distancing decrees, Zoom has emerged as one of the top video-conferencing providers for at-home professionals and the general public. It’s the app of choice because it’s free, it’s reliable, and it’s fun. A lot of that fun comes from the ability to change your Zoom virtual background…

If you'd like a virtual background image, please send an email to the Library Help Desk: library at lpts dot edu.
