You may not see the actual class but there is a live class in which the said instructor would be teaching and answering the questions, showing the demo's etc. In addition to that, the study material and a week long lab access is also granted to you. That's why, the fee of this course is the same as ILT course. With the self-study, I don't think that there is any lab access provided and neither is any additional material is given so that's why, may be, the fee is less.
What is the difference between Self-Study Course and other format for the same course like Training on Demand?
Training on Self-Study courses format are half the price of other format? Is there a catch?
Do Self-Study Courses comes with training manuals?

When I click the demo link for performance tuning course, it takes to SkillSoft website. where there is another link for demo and that link is not working with FireFox or IE.I don't think that I am the right person to answer this and you should take it up with the local Oracle University sales. Those guys would be the best to answer such doubts.
Now the question is, is this course format outsourced to SkillSoft? if answer is yes, then what contents and quality can be expected?
