ZOOM: A great way for you to help students "face-to-face" if you need to is Zoom. They are providing free access to all teachers. You can hold whole group videoconferencing, small group, or just one-on-one help for those who really need it. In addition, you can screen cast to help deliver instruction, showing your screen (Wonders, ThinkCentral, Word, Powerpoint, websites, whiteboard work, etc.) while you voice over instruction (can be video or voice only along with the sharing of the screen).
