Course start date

This is where you specify the starting time of the course (in your own time zone).

If you are using a 'weekly' course format, then this will affect the display of the weeks. The first week will start on the date you set here.

This setting will not affect courses using the 'social' or 'topics' formats.

However, one place this setting will affect is the display of logs which use this date as the earliest possible date that can be displayed.

In general, if your course does have a real starting date, then it makes sense to set the real date, no matter what course formats you are using.
