Dear all,

 

RE: POST /api/v1/courses/:course_id/assignments

 

I am just starting to look at the possibility of using the Canvas API to create many (Turnitin LTI) assignments for many courses.  I can see there are parameters to create assignments using (what I assume is for) the old Turnitin API and set options for external tools.  However I want to know if anyone has successfully created and set Turnitin options for an (external_tool) Turnitin LTI assignment?

 

I have only got as far as this which works, but I haven't set Turnitin as the external tool or any Turnitin options yet:

 

/api/v1/courses/61/assignments?assignment[name]=APIcreateAssignment1&assignment[integration_id]=APIcreateAssignment1&assignment[submission_types]=external_tool&assignment[points_possible=100&assignment[grading_type]=letter_grade&assignment[grading_standard_id]=5

 

Kind regards

Jago
