Deep learning in education is fairly a new concept. Although the concept of predictive analytics is being slowly introduced in predicting student performance based on numerous data points, making learning experiences more adaptive, individualized, or engaging has not been achieved. Furthermore, integrating higher order learning activities (i.e., applying knowledge, problem solving, critical thinking rather than memorization) or assessing student performance beyond standardized tests has not been done to date. Unfortunately, such phenomenon is solely due to the fact that tests and exams have been dictating how learners learn. In short, deep learning can help replace all standard exams while making learning more engaging and highly interactive in all forms of education and training scenarios. In the long run, deep learning can and will help transform the way students and trainees learn and the way they are assessed with higher order thinking activities.
