Question regarding Canvas Live Events

I was wondering what the status of Live Events is.

 

I have an LTI tool and I would like to use live events to get "pushed" individual data changes instead of using the API to "pull" ALL data on every page load. Our LTI is a dashboard that pulls in a lot of data, so it leads to long page loads.

 

Is it possible for an LTI to subscribe to data push updates (like submissions, changes in modules and assignments, and user changes) for a specific class?

 

In my dream world, I would never call an API again, I would just receive data from canvas when something changes. That would be less overhead for Canvas and me and would dramatically improve page load time and user experience.

 

Thanks!
