I dated an MA recipient who didnt accomplish much during his education (and nothing after.) He described his university experience as "babysitting". I was there. It was embarrassing.

The demands of MA programs differ immensely.

The assumption everything one can learn at school can be learnt while they're on vacation just isn't true. I feel bad when I teach a course but have to provide some of the lectures online due to scheduling conflicts. I will always try to find a substitute instead. There is too much learning benefit from being in class with colleagues and instructors to just slap slides and notes up online instead.
