Brisbane Seniors Online (BSOL) is a not for profit volunteer organisation. It provides Greater Brisbane area seniors training on computers, tablets, and smartphones. Lessons are provided by volunteer Mentors. They can be on a variety of subjects depending on the Learner’s needs.
Note: We do not provide computer training for commercial purposes, nor do we provide technical support, computer repairs, or maintenance.
Those 50+ can become a member of Brisbane Seniors Online for a low fee and receive numerous hours of lessons throughout the twelve month period of their membership.
Lessons can be undertaken in a variety of locations, including;
- the Learner’s home
- a local library
- BSOL’s office
- or any other mutually agreed location.
Learners are matched with a suitable volunteer Mentor who will assist them with their learning requirements.
