Are due dates locally-based?

Are Assignment/Quiz due dates and availability dates course-specific, or user-specific?

If an assignment is due at 3pm Central US time, will it be due 3pm local time for someone in Paris, or will it be due at their local time? I think it’s the 2nd, but want to make sure.

Many thanks,

Hi,  @vandover ‌.

If an instructor set a 3pm central time due date, students in Paris would have a due date of 9pm. Students are encouraged to set their time zone in their user profile. This will help them stay up to date on assignments. Learn more in this Canvas Guide: How do I set a time zone in my user account as a student?
