Are online college classes as good as classroom classes?

I have read that some online schools are very bad when it comes to educational value. What do you think?

Some online schools can be detrimental to one's education, even if the student was putting in their time and effort into their classes by being self-disciplined. But the same could be said about attending college classes on-campus. There are lot more factors involved than just where you take the class, online or on-campus. You also have to determine the student's self discipline and ahow much time they are able to invest in learning.

I don't think anything that online classes are as good as classroom classes. You don't learn the same way. I was homeschooled through the mail for my 11th and 12th year of high school and I feel like I wouldve learned more if I would've went to a classroom setting. You don't have a teacher their to explain it to you or walk you through it and I think having a teacher their helps alot.
