Distance learning for programming languages

Has anyone used Learning Lynx to learn computer programming languages?

I am interested in learning computer programming. But, I am not so good with self study, and I'm not in a location where I can take a class at a community college. So, I'm looking at distance learning. I came across the Learning Lynx site, and it seemed like what I'd like. I'm interested if anyone has any experience with them. Or, does anyone have a suggestion for another place to look for a programming language distance learning course?

Find someone who knows more than you and have them teach you. Can be over the net or not. I'd stay away from anything that you can't interact with in a significant fashion. Learning programming is all about making mistakes, learning what you did wrong, and not making the same mistake again.

$400 is also a bit steep, considering it basically just duplicates a book (which it admits on its site). You're much better finding someone online. My contact info is in my profile, if you're interested.
