I think that watching videos or reading blog post is somewhat like attending a lecture or reading a textbook but simplified. Although it depends if the video/post is guiding you through a project or something like that it would lean towards the practical side. I see it more like a spectrum.

 

Yes agree with this. I guess what I think of when I think of lectures, is like compiler theory which was mostly about first-order logic, or architecture units which focused on designing systems using class diagrams and UML. The actual act of programming definitely took a back seat haha. Most of the online video training I've seen is more comparable to a tutorial or lab at university. Either way it doesn't matter, it's just an interesting observation.
