Online courses are generally better for those who can manage deadlines themselves and are self-motivated. I did better in most of my online courses, mainly because I could work on material at my own paced. I also found the tests to be easier than in class courses because you were limited to being tested on material given to you. Either online, or on a package. There were no "when we discussed this in lecture...." type questions for example. I took both courses at Guelph. I took 5 online courses in total during my undergrad and enjoyed each one.

I agree with oncovet; online courses are better for those who are self-motivated, I enjoyed them because I could work ahead or put off work depending on my other classes. Contrary to oncovet's experiences though, I don't like online courses because they test on the material given, which is usually online class notes AS WELL AS chapter readings in the textbook. I find in lecture, I can get a better sense of what's important to know for exams based on what is focused on in lecture, whereas online, I felt overwhelmed because I didn't know where to focus my studying and no one can memorize a whole textbook. Plus I found that the textbook readings always took a long time to get through so that took up a lot of my time.
Yeah it is true that online courses are best for the self-motivated people. I am also going to take LSAT quite soon and would like to join one of the most popular LSAT online courses. Actually I have some time restrictions for physical classes so decided to go for the online ones as they can be accessed from anywhere.
