So one question comes to mind; what are you trying to proof the identity for? What process would you do if the person
was standing in front of you, can you replicate that with the remote station?

If you have any remote trusted staff at the location that the camera is at, you could leverage them to vet the ID card
and person.

My money would be going to testing centers. :-) 

There are multiple identity issues to consider here:

1. How do you verify the person who registered for the class is the student who registered for the class?

2. How do you verify the person who submits homework?

3. How do you verify the person taking the exam is the student who registered for the class?
