I wish to make a change in my career because I am bored with working as a web developer(1-year experience). Lately, I am interested in mobile app development. I would like to get training in this field. I already have a degree, so am looking for diploma courses. My question is can I do it online along with my job? If so, suggest me some websites.

Heather,
Welcome to CodeRanch! This might be a language thing, but I commonly call these things certificate courses or concentration.

Anyway, check out coursera.org. They have a lot of good courses I took a few of the mobile ones and learned a lot about Android. And remember to code a lot!

If you have experience with java, android is easier to start. You can opt for framework like unity or libGDX for game development. For IOS you still require xcode, not available for windows and Linux.

Thank you Rehan,
My friend suggested me to do regular courses and she recommended Cestar College ( www.cestarcollege.com ). I googled about the college, it has a variety of courses including iOS app development and Android app development in one module. I will get a detailed knowledge in mobile app development, but I have to quit my job (it is annoying me).
