      Description

      Clicking on the date picker does not allow the instructor to modify the date/time by keyboard. 

      In my experience, instructors will often use the keyboard to modify existing dates/times, especially for smaller changes. Also, instructors who do not allow late submissions in Assignments will often copy/paste the date/time from Due Date to Accept Until. With the current date picker, this is not possible. The only way instructors can enter or modify a date is through the date picker, which can involve more clicks. 

      **Update: The date picker covers the date field when it opens above the field. When this happens, the instructor can not modify the date/time without using the date picker. When the date picker opens below the date field, the date/time can be edited directly.
