Time zones

Outschool displays all times across the website in your local time zone. This includes class times, schedule request times, and Classroom post times, among others. We determine your time zone from your device settings.

Your device settings will usually pick up the right time zone without any action needed from you, but you can always visit https://whatismytimezone.com to check that this is set correctly.

If the time zone displayed is not correct please change the timezone of your device. For example:

If you’ll be in another time zone for an upcoming class, you can override your device’s time zone to use a specific region’s time on Outschool from your account settings.

Click outside the text field to save your changes. Outschool will now display all times in PST based on the Oakland, CA, USA entry.

Time changes

Outschool accounts for daylight saving time (DST) when displaying times. You will not need to make any changes to your account to accommodate this time change.

If you or your teacher are located outside North America, please confirm your class time in advance by communicating via the classroom. Check your Schedule tab for a full list of meeting times displayed correctly in your timezone. If you believe that you’re seeing the wrong times on Outschool, please use the help button in the upper right corner of the site or write to support@outschool.com.

Changes should not affect any upcoming or in-progress classes if your location observes daylight saving time. For example, if you are currently enrolled in a class that meets at 6pm on Tuesdays, the class will still proceed each week at 6pm.
