It matters from where you get the degree far more than how it was completed. Different schools have different reputations and a traditional classroom degree from a school with a poor reputation has less value than an online degree from a school with an outstanding reputation.
There is recent (last year) academic research that solidly supports this. ie: an online degree from Top Elite University will be picked over a classroom degree from East Podunk State U. if all other things are equal. When the two schools are identical (ie: online at U Florida or classroom at U Florida) there is no statistical significance in hiring preference.
For the most part, companies don't ask on your application "was your degree done online?" and would have no way of knowing how you earned it unless you tell them. Some schools are assumed to have been online whether they were or not. University of Phoenix is one of these. But, most others are assumed to be classroom or a combination.
NBC News tells us that 35% of all institutions of higher learning are now offering complete degrees online. That's 1 of every 3. Your options are enormous and probably includes the State U where you live.
Understand that this is not the easy way to go. Online classes at a reputable college are very difficult and require considerable motivation and self-direction. For many people, it's the best way to go. I'd suggest you try a few classes somewhere (Louisiana State, Brigham Young, UMass, Harvard) online before you commit to a full program and the costs involved.
add: It's all about the reputation of your college. All of the universities on Prof 'Ranto's CV teach online - they don't think they offer a bad education. Harvard and Oxford teach online too. Ranto is one of those people who thinks any reference to online education means "for-profit" college and forgets that his UC-Berkeley and Duke are teaching this way. hmmmmm
He also seems to forget that most people don't attend one of those highly selective schools top-ranked by USNWR. Most people attend YourState University and the like and well over half attend a tier 3 or tier 4.
