Various multimedia tools are also used for making out the content look attractive and interactive. Students join these courses to compete among themselves, gain knowledge and earn certificates. Almost every type of course is offered ranging from basic to specialization courses. These technologies are a boon to our learning culture. This paper makes an analysis of advantages and limitations of MOOCs based and mobile learning modes. This paper alsomaps the findings with a survey on 770 students of Delhi NCR region (India). As in this era of technology we all see the future of education in MOOCs and Mobile based learning, hence the major findings of this work is to identify the gap in these modes based learning methodology. It will help the practitioners to improve the utilities from these modes of learning. Keywords - Education; MOOCs; Mobile Learning; M-learning applications
