Tips if you work from home
Background in Zoom
There are different images that you can use in Zoom. Just remember that you have to sit against a single-colored wall for it to work well with the background image.
Upload the image: Use the Zoom client at your computer. Click at your name/initals at the upper right corner. Choose "Settings". Choose "Virtual Background". Click on the plus sign, choose "Add image". Upload the image.
When you've uploaded the image in Zoom, make sure that the box "Mirror my video" is not ticked since the image then gets reversed. If you don't have a green screen behind you, make sure the box "”Green screen” is not ticked.
Download a background with an image of the campus (when the image opens in a new window, right-click and choose "Save as image")
Download a white background with the university logo in the background (when the image opens in a new window, right-click and choose "Save as image")
