Okay, so this is strange. We wanted to create a 1 day class so we put in Canvas that it was from June 18th from 12am - 11:59pm. When the user is logged in it Catalog tile displays that it is just 1 day. When they are not logged in it shows it as two days. Very strange. The problem is fixed if I change the times to 2am - 5pm, but seems bad that it shows two different dates depending on if you are logged in. Anyone else notice this strange bug?
Yup, we've noticed this. When we're not logged in it displays the start/end
dates translated to Greenwich Mean Time but if we're logged in it
recognizes our personal time zone preferences. So if our course is set to
end July 1, 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time the listing will show an end date
of July 2 when not logged in, July 1 when logged in. If we push the end
time early enough then the GMT time and EST date will coincide so we won't
notice a difference.

Yes, we experience this as well - very confusing for participants who initially see course listings in the catalog and then when they log in, the dates differ
I seem to recall this issue coming up as a discussion item in one of our previous Catalog User Group Meetings.
We continue to experience this problem. I posted here. https://community.canvaslms.com/message/134565-re-different-dates-when-logged-in-vs-not-logged-in?co...
I appreciate Justin's work around and we are going to try that. I have noticed that it only seems to happen to courses that are in the evening. A majority of our CE courses are 6-10pm. Daytime courses are fine.
I originally posted the problem in February. Case #04021677.
