Few studies have synthesized prior research to provide a combined overview of learning analytics issues in higher education. To address the problem, a systemic literature review was conducted to identify methods, benefits, and challenges of using learning analytics in higher education. Results of this study provide an integrative report for faculty, course developers, and administrators about methods, benefits, and challenges of learning analytics to help improve teaching and learning in higher education.
