We have our own curriculum management system that allows us to map our learning event to our learning objectives and competencies. Canvas has a lot of good features but missing the piece of mapping we have. So we want to keep our curriculum management system but use Canvas as front end for students to access learning materials.


We will create event in our local system and map the event, then we want to transfer the calender event to Canvas. We are using PHP for our local application. Canvas has the API document that shows what is the schema which uses JSON format. I know how to use PHP to generate an event in JSON format. But I don't know how to send the information to Canvas.


Is there anyone here can provide me an example to show me how you can  add in an event from your local  system to Canvas.
