The main reason is active learning while learning from a book is still high, sometimes you may feel bored and stuck while trying to do things but with online courses, you can see how exactly it’s done.
I have also found that Instructors are also more reachable than authors of popular books, another reason I am suggesting developers start with courses first and then read books to get a more comprehensive knowledge.
