Hi, are there current solutions that aid teachers in answering students' academic questions?

Do you mean AI based solutions? Or a system in general to allow students to ask questions and get replies? While I was studying in USA, Piazza used to be a good platform for such use cases. [ https://piazza.com/ ]

Can you give a clearer example/scenario of what you mean by aiding the teacher in answering the student's question?

Hi James, I have attached a sample question. So everyday, students send over about 3o such questions over the phone to teachers. How can AI assist? Perhaps there are no existing solution?

So it's probably something similar to the article https://www.isi.edu/natural-language/people/hovy/papers/06IUI-discussion-bot.pdf . The platform can a discussion board, chatbot within a virtual classroom etc.

If there are example answers, then the problem can be framed as a simple FAQ style question-answer. Why don't you try this and upload your questions and sample answers, and test if it works.

Question Answering is the area of work in AI that attempts to solve such problems. It can be factoid type, or subjective. In your example, it is multiple-choice type. Recently, siamese type neural networks have been used to solve such problems on Q&A and have been found to be really useful.
