Is Canvas' Eastern Time (U.S. & Canada) (-5:00) the CURRENT New York City time zone (EDT)? I would like the time zone of my course (starting next week) to be the same NYC's current time zone (EDT). I have the course set in Eastern time, but since this time is defined in Canvas as -5:00, I am wondering if this is correct. The reason that I ask is that daylight savings time just happened and apparently EDT is -4:00 (https://greenwichmeantime.com/time-zone/usa/eastern-time/eastern-daylight-time). I am wondering if I need to "fake" the time in Canvas to set it up so the time zone is consistent with NYC.
