Yes--I think we all agree if you have some previous and thorough understanding of the concepts then an online course may be for you. However, (see earlier posts) the vast majority of the students do not previously know the concepts.
So what we have said is consistent with what you just posted. Most people who take the course, unfortunately, do not meet the criteria that you described (again see earlier posts.)
As far as pilot training--I am not a pilot nor have I ever take any pilot training so I really can't speak to that one way or the other.
