I've taught kindergarten for 20 years. I find distance learning very difficult, because I can not see what students are working on. I designed an inexpensive document camera that could be 3D printed. It simply needs a 2M bolt and nut for a hinge, a usb extender, and a $14 dollar camera. Folks can either print this camera or have have someone else print it for them here:

As I know, such document cameras are expensive and difficult to use. I prefer other options that may be less expensive or easier to use, such as whiteboard videos, screen sharing, and voice chat. Overall, is the source that helps me with many of my student assignments. I pay for essay writing that brings "A" grades and reliable knowledge from academic experts.

I've taken a number of remote courses and can confirm that the any learning process incorporating such a document camera makes the process so much easier. The Khan Academy blackboard-style videos can work depending upon the presenter but getting an option for a real view of the task space / "over-the-shoulder" makes for a very natural student-teacher interaction. Making this simple and cheap and an option for teacher and student is a great idea. Good luck!

That's a good idea. My wife had to distance teach too last semester, and sharing work between her and the students was always a challenge - plenty of jury-rigged webcams and shakey phone video. Nice job with this!
