I would imagine that anyone that learned in a college would say that was the best way to do it.
You should really focus on your own personality. Can you sit alone learning this stuff in a small room at home? Do you learn (survive!) better in a group environment?
I can do both, but there are perks to both also. In a classroom you have a bunch of other students learning the exact same material so you can partner up if you need someone to help you out. Also, you can ask the teacher specific questions, but the price of college courses are really high (9000$ including books for a 12 month full time Comp Programming degree). And in online courses i can pause and go back as much as i need to, and its way more cost efficient (95$ a course on w3schools.com)
