If you have created a few Canvas assignments, discussion, or quizzes with due dates, you may have noticed that the time associated with the due date – the “due time” – is set to 11:59 pm by default. The due time can always be changed on an assignment-by-assignment basis, but now there is an easier way to handle due times for courses in which the default due time of 11:59 pm is rarely or never used. A new setting in Canvas allows you to select a different default due time for your course. This setting is especially useful if due times are consistent across your course. For new course sites, consider setting the default due time before creating new assignments, quizzes, and discussions.
See the Canvas Instructor Guide for steps on setting the default due time for your course.
