Objective: This study mainly focuses on secure and user-friendly open learning environment using the cloud. This will improve the quality of education, individual care and global education. Methods: To make a deep analysis of the existing massive open online courses learning environment and build a mobile application using PHP and MySQL. The application is simulated under Veracode and the authentication attack prevention time is noted. In this paper hybrid Access Control Model is compared with other Access Control Models and the results are discussed. Findings: This research work recommends a mobile application using dynamic multilevel authentication with hybrid access control for open learning environment. The mobile application has the features like device identification, freedom in preparing security index, a random question from the security index instead of a textual password, cherished graphics password, limited unauthorized attempts with time bound and hybrid access control. Dynamic multilayer authentication proves prone free from authentication attacks. Hybrid access control under dynamic policy management delivers flexible and fine-grained authorization. This model supports primarily least privilege principle, flexibility, scalability, trust level, supporting heterogeneity and temporal constraints with dynamic policy management. It shows better results than the traditional Access Control Models. Application: The proposed system suggests a highly secured and cost-effective mechanism for the open learning environment.
