Drills, such as grammar or maths exercises, fit for the most part with a behaviourist model of pedagogy, and are very web 1.0 in nature. However, they can be designed to be more appealing through the use of multimedia elements. They can also be designed to be more engaging if they take the form of quizzes and puzzles, especially where they incorporate elements of gamification.
Formerly, many drills were available on CD-ROMs and could be loaded onto local PCs. Indeed, such exercises are still sold and distributed on the CDs which sometimes accompany textbooks, but many can now be accessed on the web or as mobile educational apps.
