I like do online classes so I can help out at work more but then I know I can concentrate and do better if I am at class.

It's easier to do good in online courses and it's easier to learn in real life courses.

There's a lot you're missing out on in online classes, especially if your professor is a good lecturer.  Then again, if he/she is a horrible lecturer, you might just learn more online.

That said, there are a lot of things you just can't do as well or at all online, like debating, physical demonstrations, labs, etc.

Well, it's easier to do good on tests in online classes because you could have all the answers right in front of you and no one would ever know lol.

Most tests online are timed, though, so it's a bit harder.

FLVS tests aren't. Online courses can be pretty easy if it's with FLVS.

REAL LIFE courses are better because you can socialize and meet new people and stuff.

Totally.  Plus, you usually don't learn as much in an online class.

My last two years of high school were spent online.  I liked it cuz the classroom was interactive...The teachers gave lectures, put up slides, wrote on the e-board and such in real-time and students could ask questions and talk as well.  As far as the social aspect goes, obviously you can't be real life...But aside from that, my online school had a good setup.
