Dates and Times are important!  Pay attention to the Time as well as the Date.  Most confusion occurs over the difference between 12:00 PM (Noon) and 12:00 AM (Midnight) and how that affects End/Due Dates.  In order for Course, Timeline session or Coursework item to be available for the entire day, the Start date/time would be 12:00 AM, and the End date/time would be 11:59 PM or 11:59:59 PM.  As soon as the clock changes to 12:00 AM, it becomes the next calendar date.  For example on New Year’s Eve December 31st at 12:00 AM Midnight the Date becomes January 1st, the first day of the next year. So an assignment that Ends on January 1 at 12:00 AM, would have to be submitted by December 31 at latest 11:59:59 PM.
