The overall aim of learning outcomes and competency based education is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of higher education. It's important to track regularly student's competency acquisition so that the faculty can improve the teaching delivery and adapt the content accordingly. Student based self-assessment of competency tracking on a weekly basis aids faculty to intervene in course delivery process for effective teaching and learning experience. It also helps students to have a better understanding of their competency levels and accordingly prepare for weekly sessions. To enable students to self-assess the competencies in more structured format, there is a need for a systematic tracking tool. Additionally, it is also important for this tool to leverage on the latest technology for enhancing user friendliness and provide pervasive access through mobile technology. In this paper, we present a mobile web application, MyCompetencies, which enables faculty and students to track competencies on a weekly basis.
