    I'm not sure that it matters, depending on what you are doing. I went to college for a BA and MM. Now I've considered getting a paralegal certificate online through Duke University. The fact that it is from Duke looks very good and I don't think anyone would care that it was done online. I would think it is the quality of the education, not how it was obtained, that matters most. But ultimately the best thing for a successful career is working very hard.

    Since online degrees are such a new trend there really is no teling which one would be better in the long run.  They're supposed to be equal, right?
    I think it all comes down to student experience and the quality of the education.  It also largely depends on what kind of learner you are.  If you are one who learns visually (i.e. by reading, looking at charts, etc.) then an online degree might be the right choice.  Especially if your life is already jam-packed with activities.  However, if you're the type of student who learns by discussion and experience, then online college might not be right for you and in fact could prove to be to very frustrating. 
    Some colleges offer both online classes and traditional classes now, which is ideal for a lot of students.
    If it's not a degree you're after, you could always take an online class from somewhere like, where it's cheaper by far than through a university.  If you decide to go for a degree later, then at least you have that experience to look at later and decide what the right decision might be.

    On campus.  It'll be a long, long time before traditionally-minded employers and "the-powers-that-be" even begin to consider online degrees as being in the same category as "real" on campus college.  I'm an attorney and I recently had this conversation with other lawyers at my firm.  Everyone pretty much agreed that it'll take a lot of time before online education establishes itself as equally "legitimate" and prestigious as live, in-person, on-campus schooling.

    Both online and on-campus degrees have their pros and cons. Which one is better really depends on the field of your choice and your personal circumstances. For someone who doesn’t have a shot at getting a traditional college education for whatever reason, online learning offers a viable and attractive alternative.

    As long as the quality of online degree programs ( … r-programs ) is not suspect and they are earned from a reputable, accredited institution, I think they are as good as a degree earned from a brick and mortar school.

    I would always suggest that you should do what suits you best. If you can afford the campus education then go ahead. If not well go with the online education that allows you flexibility to work alongside.
