There is too much learning benefit from being in class with colleagues and instructors to just slap slides and notes up online

There is no universal one size fits all so what works for some will not work for others

But there are things that cannot be learnt by anyone in the absence of instruction and facilities, which is the reality of most online courses. It's why most university level courses aren't offered in an online format and most degrees require physical attendance at an institution.

All those kids whose parents take them out of school for vacation aren't necessarily going to be great independent learners nor will all the content they missed be the sort that's possible to teach to one's self from online material.

In reality, everyone is a combination of independent and group learning traits. Even kids who excel in independent study will get some benefit from hands-on learning with other learners and instructors.
