First disappointment - NIGS Course

I just tried to log in to my course that starts today, 7th June, but cannot do so, the course site lists it as a Future Course.

My first piece of feedback to NIGS is that, if you are offering courses internationally, you must pay attention to international timezones. There is a world outside North America and it is ahead of North America - it has already been the 7th June for 11 hours here!

I'm sorry to hear that there is already a problem. The association with NIGS is new and obviously there are teething problems. Hang in there, I'm sure it will be worth the wait!

Thanks Carole for your comment. Yes, there will be growing pains, but they will be looked after. One of the changes that will be coming soon is that students will indicate what time zone they are in, and all dates and times will then be automatically converted to the choice in their student profile. If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions for changes, please send them to us at
