I've taken two and a few hybrids (when they do both online and offline.) I sort of like them and sort of hate them. I like that it kind of eases my social anxiety issues with discussion and I can go and discuss whenever I want to (at the moment, I haven't had the desire because I had a really ugly episode after posting a topic. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.) I kind of hate them because I'm not the most disciplined person in the world so it's really easy for me to get behind.
It's a little easier for me to get involved in debates/discussions online than offline because I can plan what I'm going to say. I also don't get wrapped in the heat of the moment until someone posts something that gets to me instead of being in a classroom and feeling attacked by people. However, I like physical classes more on the grounds that I get in the routine and know I have to go.
I go to a really cheap community college, so nope, didn't have to pay too awful much.
