    Default Setting Proper Time Zone

    How do we set the preferences to show the proper time zone? My child has completed some assignments in the evening before bed, and the assignments he finishes just after 9:00 p.m. PST are showing as if they were completed the next day because all reports are generating in EST.

    Unfortunately, there is not a way to change the time zone settings on the reports. They are set by the developers location, within the eastern standard time zone, and we do not have a way to change this.
    If you would like to take a look at the time in EST, you may like to check out this page. It displays the current time, as well as how far ahead or behind the time is from where you live.


    Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Dear T4L Support Team:

    Time Zone support is is a common feature of modern software. T4L has many great advantages over many (but not all) online learning applications. Why is this important feature NOT included?

    Regards,

    Hi, Cathy. The curriculum used by Time4Learning was developed by Compass Learning Odyssey, who only provides it to schools. Time4Learning has acquired a license allowing them to offer it to individuals and families. Since the program was designed to be used in a classroom, a workaround needed to be employed. So, Time4Learning was set up as one big classroom. Time4Learning has added some things for families to use instead of the classroom tools that come with the program . . . such as the Activity Planner instead of the classroom Assignments tab. Time4Learning can't change the program itself, though . . . not because the technology doesn't exist or they don't know how, but because they don't own it.

    Mom of six . . . current students and homeschool graduates. Enjoying using Time4Learning since 2006!
