Need Some Advice

I need some advice on Open GL.This is my first time doing anything using opengl and i need to know if i am using the right approach.I am developing an application for my FYP(final year project) designing graphical image which incorporates words and the user has to interact with the program in order to acheive knowledge. Its going to be like a teaching application. Can any body give me some advice on where to start with this and what the best approach is???

You couldn’t be more ambiguous. Start by designing your application - on paper perhaps - or in a Word document - then decide if OpenGL is what you need to implement it.

When you are sure you need OpenGL, then come back and ask some OpenGL related questions
