Remote learning bot for poor regions

I went to my parents village because of COVID. And remote learning will start next week here. Teachers have a huge problem with it because a lot of students don't have PC. Instead they have cheap smartphone with not very good Internet connection.

The only way teacher can organize remote learning process is using messengers. Teachers will send assignments, students will do them in notebooks, take photos and send to teachers. So next week teachers will have absolute mess in their apps with hundreds of unread messages. Moreover there is no way to correct mistakes and make notes on student's photos.

I want to create Telegram or WhatsApp bot for managing assignments and also simple web interface for teachers where they will be able check them, correcting mistakes and making notes right on students photos.

I need JS developer for creating web interface and someone who is familiar with Whatsapp bots.

Great idea! Needed for a lot of regions around the developing countries! I come Central Asia and can definitely see this problem

This is such a huge problem to tackle - perhaps WiFi lite sites or SMS-based assignments might be a possible area to look into.

The prototype done but I couldn't absolutely solve last proble: sending photos with remarks to Telegram. It works very unstable.
