Honestly, the best thing you can do right now is to always keep your camera on during virtual learning! Make sure to always participate and try to answer any questions the teacher asks the class. Also, if you have any questions about the material, make sure to stay after class to ask the teacher or schedule a meeting with him/her to discuss whatever it is you're struggling with. Your teacher will definitely appreciate your continued participation and efforts to understand the material. Hope this helps!
In addition to what everyone else said, one thing that you should do is to try to connect with your teacher by telling them that you want to/are trying to perform to the best of your ability in their class and then ask for tips/their opinion for ways that you, specifically, can improve. Not only does this show that you're genuinely interested in bettering yourself, but it also shows how you're taking initiative to acknowledge that there's always room for self-improvement.
Hope this helps!
If your teacher has extra office hours or tutoring sessions, take advantage of those! They will see that you are making an extra effort to succeed in their class, and even if you don't get the grade you want, they will still remember how hard you worked! Participation is also a factor! Even though it might seem scary or unnecessary, turn your camera on and ask/answer questions. Set up your workspace in a place that isn't your bed, and get ready like you would for normal school. This will show them that you take pride in your education enough to treat this weird virtual thing like normal school. Email them with questions about assignments, due dates, or the material, showing that you're not afraid to ask for help when you need it. Ambition, flexibility, and pride in your work are things that colleges look for in an applicant.
