Yeah, I agree. I've participated in both forms of education. Either way though, you get what you put in but it's a whole lot easier to get
from a traditional classroom setting. I also think with certain disciplines it's only a nominal difference.
Eventually, much of education (even ivy league, high brow, top shelf schools) will be streaming most lectures and using classroom settings for more practical purposes. -hands on learning and Q&A. The days rolling out of bed at 7am to be at an 8am lecture so a professor can talk at you are over.
