Create a course using the API

I'm borrowing code from Canvas API Calls using Google Apps Script 

 

I'm not sure how to pass the course parameters.  I've tried multiple ways.

 

apiCall = canvasAPI("POST /api/v1/accounts/1/courses?course\[name\]=The Best Course Ever");

 

and also like this:

 

function myFunction() {
   var j = {
         "name": "Another Test Course",
         "account_id": 201,
         "workflow_state": "unpublished"
   }

    var myJSON = JSON.stringify(j);
    var apiCall = canvasAPI("POST /api/v1/accounts/201/courses",myJSON);
}

 

When I run both of these, the response looks like all the courses i'm enrolled in, but the no course gets created.

 

Does anyone have sample code, using Google Script, that creates a new course?  Or any sample code that uses the API to create a new course?

Thanks,
