In this paper we present a tool that provides an overview of learning analytics indicators, metrics, and learning design activities in the field of learning analytics over the past decade. The system is based on our literature review from a total of 123 scientific publications, where we fetched 132 indicators and their metrics, 40 learning activities, and eight learning events (i.e., create, explore, practice, imitate, receive, debate, meta-learn, and experiment). Therefore, we proposed a system that will provide indicators and metrics based on learning activities and learning events selected by the stakeholders. The aim is to help the stakeholders in the application of learning analytics.
