I think the objective to go to the university or to the school is 'Education' not making friends .. just my opinion.

I prefer the online education, so you can educate yourself from your home and from anywhere in this world... more than that you can learn many subject and certeficates at the same time and without need to take a bus and lose tons of time.
I also prefer online study. I am busy and I don't drive. To much time traveling back and forth. I can do my lesson, cook dinner and do laundry all at the same time. 3 things in a few hours. For me having friends online is an extra perk. Networking all over with opportunities to learn about other lives.

There's nothing wrong with learning online. It's a great way for a lot of people to get a degree: people whose schedules might not be consistent enough throughout the semester.
As for making friends: if that's the MAIN reason that somebody is going to college, then I feel sorry for whomever is paying that kid's tuition bill. Oh, sure, making buddies at college is great, but that shouldn't be the big reason to go to school.

Now if your talking about elementary school online education, if there is any, then no I dont think it is good because you are missing out on the interactions between other kids something like social skills which otherwise will be hard to get back, but on a college standpoint for somebody who really wants an eduation, and doesnt care for the parties or other on-caompus events that it is perfectly fine.
A good way to get both an on-campus experience and off-campus is to take some classes online and some at the campus so you are able to experience everything college has to offer

You can schedule your day so, that you have enough time for studing, working and for some personal relations and activities.
Bad thing is that you do not communicate with other students. I don't mean making friends with them - friendship is great, but
you come to college not for that, i guess. I mean that communicating with other people that study the same things that you do can be very usuful for the process. You can brainstorm together, change your ideas and solutions, and so on. You can do that via Internet of course, but it's not that good as "real" talking, i think.
Good luck in your studies, friends!

We also had to keep a blog of our own.....post definitions and term ideas on a Wikipedia type page....and make a few podcasts/videos. It was fun overall but I learned how easy it is to skip out of doing work. Luckily I made up a bunch of the work and didn't have to worry about a bad grade.

I am in favour of Online education as far as the student is having full devotion in study. But online education for school students is not good as it will not fulfill the basic requirement of primary education that is to make the student self sustainable in society. Every thing can't be learned by reading only one must have some sort of first hand experience also.

I don't know if the online education system works well ("well" meaning getting 100% output, but then again comparing it to other kind of education isn't the right thing to do). For one, the output depends on the person him/herself. If the person is dedicated, he/she can do well in such, but there are a lot of temptation with such styles. As one user mentioned, you could get easily distracted.

I am a freshmen and sophmore this year, online school is alot easier for me personally because my parents are split up, so i am traveling all over the countery alot to see both of them. Not to mention i do fly out to my friends alot.
So for me i honestly love it, i recommend everyone atleast doing public school till highschool because after jr. high you have some friends and people who you can trust around you, while i am not expecting all those friends to stay soild and true friends you will be able to meet new people through them even if you don't go to a normal high school.
I learned alot more teaching my self radther have a teacher sit there and tny to explain it at a amazingly fast speed (honors classes) i get to do it at my pass not the teachers.
I love online school it helps since i am a full time web developer.
