I see no difference in learning a Mesechta whether you learned it yourself aside a Sefer or listened to Shiurim. In fact, most participants in the Daf Yomi Sium HaShas listened to a Daf Yomi Shiur. There is also no reason to distinguish between a Shiur delivered in person and one recorded online.
However, the shortest Mesechta is Horiyos at 12 Blatt. Since the average Daf Yomi Shiur covers a Daf in around 3/4 of an hour, finishing it in one day would take 9 hours. I don't know if this is a practical solution for your dilemma.
