API for Dummies ;)

Good evening Everyone, 

 

I am trying to figure out a way to automate the process of creating modules and assignments. The curriculum I use is pulled through an LTI using a third-party curriculum by iCEV(Home :: iCEV | Online CTE Curriculum & Certification Testing ). I need help understanding how to write and run the API code; I am sure that it isn't as simple as it sounds. I have scripted / coded in the past with BATCH, PS, ColdFusion, PHP, and AutoIT. I do have a background in technology support and programming / scripting. 

 

I have found the awesome Canvas LMS REST API Documentation and am ready to get to work; I don't understand how to run the code. I have setup a New Access Token on my school districts *NAME*.beta.instructure.com site just need a nudge in the right direction.

 

Any and all help is being requested; just a newbie looking for a nudge. I am a teacher full time; so don't worry I won't be stalking you. 

 

Thank you for your time and experience, 

 

 

 

 

Thomas E. Bennett
