Microsoft Teams and Zoom both allow you to upload and share your own virtual background to display when attending a class or meeting.
Using a virtual background enables you to retain some privacy when sharing your webcam by hiding the background of the room you're actually in. It can also make a meeting fun - by making yourself appear to be at a famous landmark or somewhere familiar to you and your class mates.
