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?

Hmmm, let's try to check your theory ! Read this from the very beginning :

If you actually are able to code some sample code at the end of the show, then online tutors for self-teaching are of some kind of usefulness.

BTW, thanks for you long and constructed answer, I didn't expected so much.
