Background:The Indian education system has started improving in various parameters, since the introduction of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. An increase in quantity and quality of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) is one such initiative. Any efforts to improve the efficiency of such courses can be assessed unless and until we understand the learners’ motivation behind joining such courses. The present research has been a part of the Indian Council of Social Science and Research (ICSSR) funded major project.

Objective:The study was undertaken to analyse the parameters affecting learners’ motivation while joining and completing MOOCs.

Method:The secondary and primary data were collected from respondents all across the country as well as websites, journal articles. A detailed literature review has been undertaken for the same.

Result and Conclusion:The study concludes that course design, structure, Instructor Feedback, etc. are a few of the parameters which impact the learners’ motivation in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).
