Project Connect, the industry-backed initiative to link schools to the Internet, will unveil a central Web server for schools next month.
The idea is for schools to create Web sites, linked to the central server, that generate revenue through advertising of products and services. The school can also use the site to promote its own history and skills.
Project Connect has secured funding from Web designer Oyster, Informix and Silicon Graphics, which are providing services to set up the central server as well as a range of Web templates.
The initiative's chief executive, Paul Martin, expects up to 30 schools will have Web sites up and running by the end of the year.
Project Connect was set up three years ago but was offically launched last year amid much fanfare by its original members, Oracle, Novell and Bay Networks. They will continue to provide technology to run the server's network.
Martin originally planned to work with schools directly but now works with local authorities to help link their educational establishments to the Net. By working with local authorities, the initiative is able to gain assistance from MPs, regional chambers of commerce, TECs,and telecomms carriers, including BT and Telewest, he said.
