In order to submit or resubmit the assignment, you may see a Submit Assignment button. 

If you do not, you will need to click on the Assignment title at the top of the page. This will take you to the actual assignment where you can resubmit (pictured below)

Once your photo is taken, you will click "Drag a file here". This will open your Google Drive and you can select photos to find your photo to upload.


Newer iPhones will not be accessible by your teachers due to the file type.  If you are using your iPhone to take a photo, you need to convert the image from HEIC to JPEG before submitting it.  Check out the options with directions on the slides embedded on the right.

Options to Convert Images

  • Option 1: Convert Using the Files App
  • Option 2: Convert Using Email

Change Settings Before Taking Photo

Please check the iOS settings. Open the iOS app, scroll down to "Camera," tap "Formats" and pick "most compatible" for JPEG and "high efficiency" for HEIC.
