Brisbane Seniors OnLine [BSOL] is a not for profit volunteer organisation. BSOL provides seniors aged over 50 and living in the Greater Brisbane area with training on computers and other digital devices such as tablets and smartphones. Lessons can be undertaken in a variety of subjects depending on the learner’s needs. We do not provide computer training for commercial purposes, nor do we provide technical support, computer repairs or maintenance.
Lesson can be undertaken in the learner’s home, local library, our offices, or other mutual locations. Learners are matched with a suitable Mentor who volunteers their time to help in the learning process.
BSOL also offers some special interest groups that meet on a monthly basis and specialise in areas of the digital world. Groups include Apple Equipment, Linux operating system and Digital Photography.
