One of the things I've learned working with the new version of mooc.ca is that course providers pay very little attention to syndicating their content (and typically even those that syndicate would really rather you simply stayed with their site, and many absolutely won't let you export content out of their environment). And of course there's little to no consistency in course syndication formats. I've been working with course syndication formats for many years - I've worked with LOM and IMS content packaging, created an RSS-LOM, and more recently have been working with various JSON formats. Here we have old-school XML specifications, and a crosswalk between a couple of them, XCRI-CAP (eXchanging Course Related Information, Course Advertising Profile) and  schema.org json-ld.
