Abstract This paper is devoted the fostering of deep learning in online law students through engaging assessment activities.The first part of this paper explicates the principles relating to student engagement and deep learning in the context of teaching law to online law students. In line with the literature on online teaching and assessment it is argued that in the absence of.engaging teaching activities and assessment practices. deep learning will not be promoted and online students are unlike1y to learn effectively. Assessment practices used to facilitate deep learning for online students are based on principles relating to engagement, active participation, collaboration and motivation, as it is not the technology which impacts an the quality of leaming but the instructional strategy which is adopted.
