I Learning Analytics is a process to analyze the learners which improves the educational performance. Learning Analytics also helps the higher educational institutions to improve the educational practices and techniques. This paper provides a detailed survey of the current research activities conducted in the education system. The review of Learning Analytics is based on some of existing Learning Analytics applications, purpose of the Learning Analytics in the education system and the type of students. The review based on various tools, techniques and data collection methods used to implement the Learning analytics is discussed in this paper.
