Setting Moodle Site Time Zones
A Moodle site administrator can set the timezone for an entire Moodle site. To do this:
Administration > Site Administration > Location > Location Settings
There are two settings relating to time:
Whatever is selected for Default timezone is used when times are set in site and course events. For example, when times are set for opening and closing activities within a course whatever is set for the Default timezone will be used regardless of a teacher’s individual profile setting for timezone.
When you have users who are all participating in a course within the same timezone (such as a school district), you may want to also set Force timezone to the same time as set for Default timezone.
You may want to also use update timezones, after setting the server time to match your time zone.
Administration > Site Administration > Location > Update Timezones
End-User Support for Moodle course instructors is available through our Moodle Reference Desk.
