Cross benefits to Voxforge in Coursera language courses?

I see that Coursera is now offering a course in basic Korean https://www.coursera.org/learn/learn-korean. This has me wondering how Voxforge might benefit from and contribute to the learning by students interested in following such courses.

Reduced to the formula of creating a phoneme list and a lexicon of basic words and audio samples, any language from Ancient Greek to Klingon could be a candidate for data collection.

Given that the Coursera course exists, what opportunities for data collection might there be? Would be interested in the comments of native Korean speakers on this issue in the light of the Korean course.
