Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) paved the way for new instructional methods by and for academic early adopters, who shifted their traditional teaching in ways believed to improve the students experience and to provide more interactive learning opportunities. To analyze this impact in the education system, at different levels, we investigated the desired competencies of the academics who create, develop or integrate MOOCs in traditional higher education. For this purpose, a self-assessment tool for educators was created and this paper presents its pedagogical and technical design, its development and the main results from the first pilot evaluation with teachers from universities in different European countries.
