Can we use Canvas for writing a teaching program?

We've only started using Canvas at the start of 2020.  The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in a rapid implementation - which has been great.  We're trying to work out if Canvas can be used as a good tool for writing programs.  We'd like a standardised set up where our teachers can select the outcomes for their course, as well as the relevant parts of the Achievement Standards.  It would also be good to be able to identify which cross curricula priorities and which general capabilities are being targeted.  It would also be good to be able to have some mapping tool whereby we could see if all the outcomes and standards had been hit somewhere during a given school year.  We're in Australia and here at our school we're using the Western Australian Curriculum.

I don't know that I'm fully understanding what you're trying to accomplish, but it sounds like you may be doing some overall school assessment or accreditation tracking?

 Outcomes may be a good starting point?  You can set school level outcomes that instructors can bring into their rubrics for assessment.‌

Yes, that is part of it. I guess what I’m trying to do is have a spot in Canvas where staff can choose the appropriate outcomes and parts of the Achievement Standards as they design a teaching program. I can see that Canvas can have the outcomes uploaded and these can be used in the making of rubrics, but is there a programming template?
