Abstract: Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) is designed for large numbers of participants that can be accessed by anyone without entry restrictions through an internet connection, and offer a free complete course experience. These open education courses are a mid-ground between traditional structured class-room teaching and the freely available but fragmented information in the world wide web (Aydin 2017). In a traditional classroom, the educator has a specific course with clearly articulated goals and outcomes. With the push towards digitization of education, increasing competition between Universities, accreditation requirements, there is clearly a movement in Indian Education towards a learner-centric and outcome based education. Educationists are now adopting digital content in their lecture delivery, using methods other than a written examination, such as seminars, assignments, and group projects to assess the outcome. According to a report prepared by Stanford Class Central, it was estimated that more than 500 Universities offer 4200 courses to 35 million learners globally (Shah 2016). Coursera, a for-profit provider, offers more courses than many others. From India, Indian School of Business, Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore offer courses through International MOOCs. Swayam is an initiative by the government of India to offer an online education module. Students who take up the course can get credited transferred to their Certificates. These efforts taken by the Government will ensure that the quality of education improve better opportunities for faculty and teachers.
