Learning Analytics allows to describe, diagnose, predict and prescribe learning, especially in Higher Education. Two thousand eight hundred fifty-three papers related to Learning Analytics are stored in the Scopus bibliography database from 2014 until the middle of 2019, evidencing the importance and increasing interest in this line of research. This research discovers specific characteristics of investigations in Learning Analytics and answers the general question: What is the actual state of Learning Analytics research in Ecuador? This research uses a systematic mapping to answer four research questions about indexed production in Learning Analytics by Ecuadorian authors. This study has been done from 2014 until June 2019 (11 semesters). Eighty-six articles about Learning Analytics were found in RRAAE, Scopus, WOS and IEEE. Sixty-eight reports were downloaded, arranged and analysed after removing duplicates, applying inclusion, exclusion and quality criteria. The methodology used is replicable by the researchers interested in establishing a baseline in general and in particular in Learning Analytics.
