Hello from Europe (hence, the odd daytime of this email):
In our MOOC on accessibility, which is currently under heavy development,
we making use of a modified version of markdown syntax that's interpreted
by a custom-built LMS platform.
also, moodle has it: https://docs.moodle.org/23/en/Markdown, although using
Moodle for MOOCs is not a good idea.
Although we're not exactly relying on people using this syntax, it helps
speed up the html creation quite a bit whenever someone submits plain text
or word doc - based content. Whoever of the content authors wants full
control can also directly submit "marked up markdown" content - it's quite
easy to learn. See for example, http://markdowntutorial.com/
