Learners can edit their time zone and language preferences under "Account Settings" by clicking on learners avatar in the control panel on the left.
This will take learners to the “Account Basics” section of their Account Settings. Next, learners will Navigate to the tab titled “Language and Time Zone”
Here, learners are able to change their language preferences to the following:
A Learner’s language preference will be used in the NovoEd platform user interface and notification emails. It’s important to note that a learner may be enrolled in courses with content in a different language than their preferred language. To see content in their preferred language, you would need to create a course with content in your learner’s preferred language.
Note: If learners have selected the option to select a specific time zone, NovoEd will not automatically update learner’s time zone should it change.
By default, NovoEd displays learner’s computer’s time zone, but it can be changed in learner’s Account settings. Once learners have changed their time zone, times and dates are based on a learner’s preferred time zone, including release dates and deadlines.
For example, if you set the deadline to be December 22 at 23:59, this will be 11:59 PM in your time zone (Eastern Time), which means that on the west coast (Pacific Time), the deadline is actually December 22 at 8:59 PM. A learner will be able to see the exact time clearly on the assignment page. As seen below:
