How to Change Your Time Zone on Zoom Through Canvas

Updated on

Updating your time zone is essential to ensure that your participants see the correct time and join in the right time zone. If some of your participants are in a different time zone then it is important they know the accurate zone in which the meeting is in.

By default, Zoom recognizes your account as being in the Pacific Time Zone (PST). Alamo Colleges District is in the Central Time Zone (CST). Therefore, you must change this to see the correct time your scheduled meetings will occur. This guide will show you how to update your time zone within the Canvas system.

You may also update your time zone when you initially setup your Zoom account.

For Instructors

1. Begin by clicking on the Zoom link in your Course Navigation bar to the right of the screen.

2. Click the Edit button next to your listed default time zone.

A dialogue box will open giving you two options.

  • Choose your time zone.
  • Select your language.

When you have completed your selections, click Update.
