Learning analytics are tools that have gradually gained importance in the context of higher education, especially with the momentum of e-learning and its tools, it is increasingly important to have the ability to analyze in detail what the student does (and does not do), during his stay in the training scenarios. In this sense, the objective of this paper is to analyze the characteristics in relation to the application of Learning Analytics in Higher Education. For this, a systematic review of scientific articles published in Scopus journals in English or Spanish language, during the last 5 years (2017-2022) is developed. The results yielded a total of 200 articles, of which 14 were chosen, considering the inclusion and exclusion criteria previously defined. The findings showed that, although the benefits of Learning Analytics are notorious, there is not enough evidence to affirm that they lead to significant improvements in educational processes.
