Out of curiosty, how would you estimate your information retention rate with this style of learning compared to actually taking the courses as a full time student?

What I like about the courses is that it's organized into short sections... I can rewind if I wasn't attentive, and I can "fast forward" over the familiar material. The video is edited out and streamlined. I believe that I am actually learning more from the lecture itself. There are frequent quizzes, which can be taken multiple times. Many courses have programming assignments. Also, the discussion forums are really helpful and insightful and point to Internet resources. The information retention from the courses is exceptional.
