Setting Course and Enrollment Dates in Rover by OpenStax
When a new course is created in Rover by OpenStax, instructors will need to set up a course and enrollment start/end dates following these steps:

1. Go to the instructor dashboard for your Rover course (assignment manager). The link to this page will include “am.” For example: am.my.roverbyopenstax.org

2. From the course Dashboard, click on the title of the course you would like to edit



3. Click on the Settings tab at the top of the page and select Schedule & Details



4. On the Settings & Details page, you can edit the default course state/end dates and enrollment dates.

  • Course dates and times are when your students can access and complete work in Rover.
  • Enrollment dates and times are when your students can see the course and all its assignments. 
  • Time Settings in Rover are in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time, or Greenwich Mean Time. If you hover over the UTC symbol the local UTC time is displayed.). For students, assignment due dates will appear in their local time zone. To convert a time in your time zone to UTC, you can use this online converter: https://www.thetimezoneconverter.com/  
5. Click Save Changes at the bottom of the screen
