You don't store timezone information at all?
Storing UTC is great, storing ONLY UTC is not so great...
What happens when one of the students or teachers travels abroad and logs in to the system? Do they suddenly get the times in their new time zone?

The EU wants to stop doing winter/summer time in two years, I just hope they stick to winter time (our actual time zone with long winters and short summers) Big Grin | :-D
Of course when they do, all our software will break because of all the winter/summer time zone fixes in place Laugh | :laugh:
I worked on a travel system where a trip could take you -30 minutes if you crossed a time zone or if winter time kicked in Laugh | :laugh:
