    In light of the new option to allow courses to have a format of "Blended" (see https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-6332#jive_content_id_Course_Settings), it would be incredibly helpful for this course format field to be available as an option within the SIS Import format for the courses.csv file.  At the present time, this field can only be set through the GUI or through a separate API call to add this field to a course that already exists, but it cannot be set during course creation through the SIS Import process.  This feature request would allow this format flag to be set during course creation through the existing SIS Import process.

     

    The SIS Import format could look something like this with options for on-campus, online, blended:

    course_id,short_name,long_name,account_id,term_id,status,format,start_date,end_date
