It would be nice to have a mechanism which allows to create pages for a course outside of Canvas and then upload them (as pages). Or, failed that, upload them as files and then convert these HTML files into Canvas pages.
Here is one rationale for doing that. Let us say you teach the same course quite often. The structure of the class is always the same, but there are some minor things that needs to be tweaked. They are easy to modify on your computer but take forever to modify in Canvas. Basically, on your computer you can write and run a script that updates templates created once and for all, but in Canvas you have to open and edit each and every page, and there are quite a few of them. Opening the HTML editor and copy/pasting works when you only have a very limited number of pages, but when you have 20+ of them, it consumes a lot of time. Having fewer pages is not an option because that would be inconvenient for students.
