M-learning provides ample amount of career opportunities to the students who want to earn while studying, like captcha typing, content writing & data entry. The best part of m-learning is it hardly concerns distance for learning. For example, a learner who belongs to India & wants to learn a course which is available only in a university of London and he is not affluent enough to go there then this huge distance matters nothing in m-learning. He can learn the same course from the same university of London very easily sitting in India via m-learning.

Students also participate in them very enthusiastically and enjoy participating as well as learning from such competitions. Such activities organized online encourage students to keep on learning.
