Problems pulling course list

Hello.  I am trying to pull a list of courses for a institution that I am working for.  I have used both the /doc/api/live website and the Postman tool for making the web API calls.  No matter which tool I use to make the call, I keep getting the same short list of 5 courses.  I know for fact that the school has over a thousand courses active for this term.

 

Using the /docs/api/live website, I have put in a token value which works for all other calls.

The generated URL value is: https://<name:.instructure.com:443/api/v1/courses

 

In Postman I am using the same URL with an Authorization Token of Bearer with the token value included.

I have also tried putting the token value directly into the URL with the access_token parameter.

I also have included the &Page= and &Per_Page parameters with the page # value of varying values between 1 and 10 and the Per_Page parameter with varying values between 3 and 20.

 

In all cases of calls (api/live and Postman) I consistently receive the same list of 5 courses.

 

Does anyone have any idea of what I am doing wrong? 

 

Thank you.
