Delve into a digital world

ARE you keen to know more about the digital and online worlds?

Brisbane Seniors Online (BSOL) provides affordable, one-on-one home tutoring to seniors and over 50s in the Brisbane area using voluntary mentors.

Training is offered on desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smart phones.

Help is also provided to help learners recognise and avoid scams and fraudulent activity online.

Digital photography is also offered in the BSOL Woolloongabba training facility and all members and mentors can attend the monthly meeting of this group and participate in photography excursions and training on photographic techniques.

Linux, Apple and Mentor Support Groups also meet monthly.

With families and friends spread overseas and around Australia, keeping in touch by email, social media and online video chat is a convenient and effective way to stay close. BSOL can show learners how to use this media to stay in touch safely.

Brisbane Seniors Online is always looking for more volunteer mentors as well as new learners across most of the Greater Brisbane Area.

Learners pay a one-off joining fee of $20 and an annual membership fee of $45. This gives the learner, as a guide, 12 x 1-hour, one-on-one home lessons on their own computer or device in their own home using an experienced volunteer mentor.

At the end of this tuition, ongoing support for the balance of the membership is offered. There is no fee for volunteer mentors, and additional training is available to mentors.

New mentors are most welcome.
