I did 2 semesters of game design online and the experience was awesome. Staff are very helpful and patient with me even though I ask A LOT of questions. Online system for learning was simple and easy to navigate. I don't know if it's me, because I'm out of town and it's harder to make connections, but I recommend building industry contacts while you're learning. NAIT will help, but I don't think they'll do it for you.
