This paper presents the Learning Analytics Indicator Repository (LAIR), an interactive web-based application that allows the exploration of learning analytics approaches. From scientific publications in the field of learning analytics, we extracted the stakeholders, metrics, platforms and indicators, and transformed them into a directed graph representation. The LAIR allows filtering by these components and provides a list of publications where the approaches can be found. We invite other researchers to contribute to this repository.
