In the News Six-month-old web site Codecademy claims you can learn programming through its online tutorials. The free modules on JavaScript are now available. The site also allows anyone to post their own programming courses. The site has good funding, but question is: can you really learn programming this way? One blogger enthuses that Codecademy's approach "looks like the future of learning to me," while another slams it saying "Seriously? Wow, bull**** badging and sh**ty pedagogy wins the day in ed-tech investing." What do you think?

They all work pretty differently, some are more prone to learn from graphics, some other are sound based, some other are more literal. Provided the information is available, whatever is its form, it might match some people. And cross-checking informations from various sources helps improving the learning curve.

Otherwise it's like saying khanacademy is of no worth at at :/
