[Course Pacing] Set pacing based on fixed workshop dates

Problem statement:

Most of our courses include synchronous (often face-to-face) workshops or events, around which the timing of Canvas content is based. For example, students are expected to complete Module 1 within the 2 weeks prior to attending Workshop 1, and follow-up assignment should be completed 2 days after attending Workshop 1. At the moment, we manually calculate and set module unlock dates and assignment due dates for each cohort based around their scheduled workshop dates.

Proposed solution:

Ideally the course pacing feature would allow us to enter a number of fixed course dates, and have other dates calculated around those, rather than on the start date only. E.g. Module 1 unlocks X days before a certain date (that is not the course start date).
