I always preferred in classroom for the networking and personal interaction opportunities.  And, I also took a lot online for convenience of getting a specific class I wanted that wasn't being offered anywhere nearby.

Ours are only available online now, thank goodness!  I had found in the past, a typical 2 or 3 hour class could have been achieved in 20 minutes online.  Watching women clean out their purses, men actually sleeping, people on their devices playing games . . .   not a productive use of my time.  The majority of the instructors were no longer relevant in today's business either.

I go to class. It's the only way I can concentrate. And it's fun catching up with other agents in the area, whom I don't often have a chance to see. Besides, we have a fabulous CE instructor and I love seeing him and attending his classes.

I do online, and have for years. I used to be able to get through them quickly, even with the quizzes and tests, with perfect scores, but now they have a timer, at least in Arizona. You don't learn anymore, just waste time between chapters, due to the timers. Seems that the 'system' is structured to reward physically sitting for three hours at a time in a classroom, with NO TESTS OR QUIZZES. Makes very little sense.

It depends on what it is. Most one off "classes" I do online, but when it's a "course", I prefer the dynamics of a classroom. 

ie. I renew my license online and I do a lot of  1 hour webinars, but I found more value in the classroom energy, when I took Buffini's Peak Producers, because of the other Realtors' questions and comments; I learned almost as much from them as I did from the course.
