What are the pros and cons of learning online vs. live on campus?

To go from high school to college at home deprives the student of the college experience. However, for someone who's so introverted that they dread stepping foot on a campus, then an online education could be perfect. It all depends on what the student wants in the 21st century. Online is vastly cheaper, has much more flexibility as to class scheduling. Make sure you back up all your files and have plenty of RAM for an online education.
