[Athen] Saving images for an online math class with iOS

Good morning!

I'm hoping that someone with more extensive iOS tech tricks has a solution to an online math course dilemma.

We have an instructor who is teaching a College Algebra course online. Some of our students have little access to computers and/or internet unless it is via a mobile device. The instructor would like to allow students to upload images of their math work to Blackboard. She thought they could do it via a phone or tablet but right now we can only get it to work with Android devices.

iOS saves all photos as "image" and Blackboard (understandably!) will only allow you to upload one file with the same file name. I was thinking that a possible solution would be to save the files to something like Google Drive or Dropbox first and change the file name there before uploading to Blackboard. However, we're trying to do this in as few steps as possible and as simply as possible for students.

Does anyone know how to adjust the settings in iOS to manipulate file names?

Thanks so much!
