No, Paul, we don't have online classes. I was informed about the existence of this online course by its designers some time ago:
But I do not know anyone who has had experience with it (I recall a few SK-W members planning to check it out in the past).
Perhaps because online language classes haven't been around for long, I haven't met anyone who's acquired at least quite basic communicative skills that way in any language so far (meaning beyond a few courtesy phrases and lists of nouns with no ability to understand answers to memorized questions). But I wouldn't be surprised if there were other reasons for that. It's probably not that far from teaching yourself a foreign language, which is an enormous endeavor, especially if the language is quite unlike something we already speak.
