Some drawbacks of online communication:
Online communication lacks the element of respect otherwise inherent in face-to-face interactions between a teacher and students or other listeners.
Online, there is also the issue of diminishing respect that comes from being able to listen to a teacher at one's own convenience, as opposed to at the will of the teacher.
Online, avenues of doubt open that are otherwise impossible or rare in face-to-face communication. Online, things can easily seem clean and sterile, quite different than they are IRL.
To say nothing of the role of simple human warmth.
