According to this article, " Coursera was rebuilding its ­platform “from the ground up” to allow students to commence courses “on demand” and to give university ­instructors access to student data on progress and performance." To me what this sounds like is that Coursera is going to take on the LMS market directly. The big change will be that Coursera supports 'on demand' course access so people don't have to wait for the next class to start. Single-course certification will be popular, according to the article, because "there is a growing trend toward ­micro-credentials."
