You pay this tax on TANGIBLE personal property purchased outside the state and  consumed while you're in the state.  If all you paid for was access to an online course, then it wasn't your personal property and you wouldn't pay the tax on it.  If you actually received documents and books for the course, then you did get personal property and would pay the tax.
