What is the difference between DOTA and MOBA?


I'm pretty sure both of these game types fall under the real time strategy genre, but I find that I'm confused every time a gaming article mentions one. I know that DOTA started as a warcraft 3 mod and ballooned into its own thing, but what is MOBA? Are they more like the army based combat of starcraft or are they more like the single player experience of diablo? Also, do they have single player campaigns or are they strictly multiplayer? I feel old, as the gaming industry seems to be leaving me behind.
