Does Canvas "publish" textbooks?

I am working on writing a textbook.  I'd like to create an OER.  As I've done research on OERs I've realized that many publishers are connected to specific universities (MIT and Rice), groups of colleges, or Wikis which anyone can change.  Does Canvas publish textbook OERs?  How does this work?  Do I just create my textbook using my college's Canvas LMS, paste my texts into the pages feature, and share it to the commons?   Obviously, I like the idea of my textbook being "published" but I'm fine with other instructors adapting and changing content (if my original is also available).   What's the difference between "content" and a "textbook"?  I have 300+ pages of text written and hours of videos that I made.
