Deeper learning promotes students' active engagement in learning environments, so they can continuously explore, reflect and produce information to build complex knowledge structures. Consequently, deeper learning has become a major focus of scholarly investigation and debate. Multiple studies have been conducted to describe the characteristics of deeper learning and to determine methods for infusing it into the curriculum. The paper starts with a description of deeper learning, reviews the body of existing research and presents guidelines for deeper learning that can be used in online learning environments.
