Of course it does depend on the individual reviewing the resume and their biases, conscious or unconscious. In general, however, on-line degrees are beginning to be accepted as equal to a traditional degree. As technology evolves, it is perfectly acceptable for one to leverage this technology to obtain their degree. The same can be said for the work place and how, where, and when work gets done. What is most important is to demonstrate your level of knowledge in your field. On your resume and in conversations with prospective employers, talk about projects and internships, etc. that you have had. In the end, an employer is going to be interested in your ability to do the job and not from where you obtained your degree.
