    Learners need various types of information in order to monitor their progress while performing a task. Indicators help learners to organise, orientate, and navigate through complex environments by providing contextual information that is relevant for the performance of learning tasks. In this paper we discuss a service-oriented implementation of an architecture for indicators, which is applied in a co-operative learning scenario. The services of this implementation utilise learning technology specifications, which provide semantics for modelling educational scenarios. This paper implies that the given learning technology specifications are suitable for modelling learner support for non- and informal learning, but further research is required on analysing context dependent factors of learner support.
