The swift replacement of traditional education by virtual ones should be viewed as a "reroute" for educational reform's usual slow pace. Virtual learning is preferable because it allows pupils to “achieve greater heights without being constrained by a number of predefined circumstances”. As MOOCs shift from an experimental technology to a more traditional learning resource, course designers and MOOC operators alike are spending more time thinking about how to make them accessible.  Colleges and universities make their programmes accessible to people with disabilities.When we talk about lifelong learning, emphasis should be on bringing college campuses at the doorsteps of the learners.  In today's digitally revolutionary world, one of the goals is to employ technological equipment to remove many of the barriers to education, such as economics, access, and cost. This is where the value of MOOCs for education in a developing country like India comes into play. The characteristics of MOOCs are discussed in this paper, as well as their importance to Indian higher education.
