Are you a Distance Learning student at Florida State University? If so, we strongly recommend that you adjust your personal Canvas time zone settings to match your region. FSU's Canvas courses are automatically set to Eastern Time for all date and time displays, so times and dates you see within your Canvas courses will usually display in Eastern Time. However, your instructor may be located outside the Eastern Time Zone and may adjust the course time zone settings so that they display correctly according to the instructor's local time zone. In order to avoid confusion, it is best practice to set your personal user time zone settings so that all course dates and times will appear correctly for your local time.
