    Currently, when instructors use our application and want to sync grades from our application to Blackboard, we're using PATCH /learn/api/public/v2/courses/{courseId}/gradebook/columns/{columnId}/users/{userId} endpoint. The problem is that when an instructor has many students (e.g., 400) and many columns (e.g., 20), the sync ends up using a lot of API calls (8000 in the example). Having an API endpoint that allows for batch uploading of grades to a column would reduce the number of calls significantly.
