      There should be a clock in the Sakai interface, which is present on all pages, such as in the top area of the page. If a user's time zone in Preferences is set to a different time zone than the server, then the clock should display both times. When everyone is in the same time zone the clock is less critical, so it probably should be a configurable option on both a system-wide and user-preference basis.

      Use Cases:

      • If you regularly work in the same time zone as your server, but then you reset your time zone in preferences for convenience when traveling, it would be nice to see the two times presented conveniently somewhere on the screen when creating or browsing time-based artifacts, such as Assignments or Schedule items.
      • When working with collaborators spread across multiple time zones it would nice to have your local time as well as the server time displayed as a handy reminder of the differences between you and your colleagues when working with information in Sakai.
      • Having a clock that is updated through a connection with the server on a regular, frequent bassis provides a handy visual queue that you are still "connected" to your collaborators when you are engaged in synchoronous activites, such as Chatting, and aren't falling victim to a bad network connection and have become disconnected from the conversation.
