Updated 09 December 2001, 12.16

Do you ever think that school lessons are prehistoric?

Does it feel like learning in class will NEVER be as funky as playing on computers?

Well things could be about to change, and sooner than you expect.

Total cost: 210m

The government and the BBC are spending 210m to transform lessons in a new project called 'Curriculum Online'.

It means that you'll be able to do your lessons on computer, using fast internet connections.

There'll be the latest interactive material to make subjects enjoyable, including text, graphics, animation, and high quality video and sound.

You can also work at your own speed, with personalised courses.

The first courses will be based around English and Maths, with the rest of the curriculum to follow.
