Tahoe Course API

API Endpoint to retrieve course identifier data on Tahoe from a third-party system. 

Use these to use an external system to retrieve course identifiers. This is needed in order for a remote client to retrieve course ids, which are used in enrollment. For the initial release, this endpoint is intended to provide course identifier information to support the Enrollment API, and not provide detailed course overview information. Future updates will include the ability to retrieve both simple identifier information and detailed information.
