Considering the variety of focuses and the perceived lack of consensus found when measuring e-learning in higher education institutions, especially in campus courses under the scheme of blended learning, we propose a new system of indicators based on evidence found in systems of wide-scope indicators and other systems of specific-scope indicators; the former introduced as proposals by organizations and the latter as academic case studies. The work of building the proposal is based on benchmarking activities and statistical analysis of frequent observable elements in e-learning in both kind of systems of indicators. As a result, we introduce a set of categories, variables and indicators that aim to satisfy certain desired features in metrics for measuring the Information Society; this is a set of elements proposed to be validated near in the future through experimentation in on-campus courses in higher education.
