My program was a hybrid one - mostly online with some face-to-face interaction. And I also study distance education methods ....
If you are pretty good at keeping yourself on track and won't miss the social aspect of a classroom, it is probably a good fit for you. Most adults, especially graduate students, do well in this environment. I've known a few who just couldn't stand it. It is usually MORE reading and writing - since everything it done through text (unless you have really tech savvy profs who also do audio lectures).
I have done group projects with my own online students, but the prof really needs to provide the tools to make it work. Although you do still have to work around everyone's schedule ... often a problem.
Let me know if you have any questions!!
