This guide provides a quick overview of how to add a clock widget to your home page.
Why would you want to add a date and time widget? All dates and times throughout your Quercus courses are displayed according the course’s respective time zone. At UofT, this is Eastern Standard Time. This means that if you’ve set an assignment due date to 11:59 pm (EST), students will see this due date as 11:59 pm regardless of their time zones. Embedding a clock with the course local time on your home page (and/or to assignment descriptions) can help students in other time zones manage their assignment deadlines. We can create this kind of clock using Timeanddate.com.
