I understand that Blueprint courses needs to be created manually rather than using SIS-provisioned courses. However, what tools or scripts can use to create automatically blank automatic courses and linking those courses to the blueprint?

In Moodle, you can create a php script for that and add it to the cron file in order to automatically create courses. Are there similar approaches for Canvas?
I have found the Canvas Blueprint manager from the Indiana University but I am not sure if this is an add-on from Canvas or the University programme it.


Many thanks for any advice that you can give.
