All dates and times throughout Canvas are displayed according an account or course's respective time zone. However, you can set your own time zone for your user account and have your local time zone display throughout Canvas. Displaying dates in your local time may help you stay up to date on events and course content, especially if the account or course time zone differs significantly from where you reside.
Note: If you set a time zone in your user settings, you can always view the course time zone by hovering over any date and time in Canvas. The text will show both the local time and course time.
