I've taken both online and face-to-face classes there, and like both
formats. Online you get a bit less interaction (how much less depends
on the teacher), but it's less schlepping.

Cost is amazingly cheap. It's $13 per unit, plus some once-per-term
fees, so you could probably register for the class for $60-70. Truly
a bargain.

I like classes as a format for learning because I'll push myself to learn
things I wouldn't normally take the time for.

Classes at Foothill are 12 weeks, except in Summer when they're 6.
