Location

Moodle has two separate Moodle pages for location: Location Settings and Update location time zone.

Location Settings

You have three options to make changes on the Location Settings page:

  • Default Time Zone: The first drop-down list is for the default time zone. It's set for where the server is located. You can change this.
  • Force Default Time Zone: You can enable users to choose the time zone or force one for everyone.
  • Default Country: The default allows users to choose their country. If you choose the country, it will become the default for all new user accounts, site-wide. I recommend letting users choose.

The remainder of this page is related to IP settings and IP address lookup and includes a short explanation for each choice.

Update Time Zones

The Update Time Zones page enables anyone with administrative privileges to update their local database with information about world time zones. This option is useful because you may need to make changes to accommodate Daylight Saving Time.
