Brisbane Seniors OnLine (BSOL) provides seniors aged over 50 in the Greater Brisbane area with training on computers and other digital devices such as tablets and smartphones. 

Learners are provided with lessons on subjects they want as well as lessons on email and computer security issues and maintenance of computer operating systems.  

Lessons are conducted in either:
  • Your home on your computer;
  • BSOL's Woolloongabba Computer Training Centre on your laptop/portable device or BSOL's computers, or
  • a public library on your  laptop/portable device or the library's computers.  

Tuition in advanced subjects are dependant on the availability of qualified mentors.  

BSOL does not provide computer training for commercial purposes. Nor do we provide technical support, computer repairs or maintenance.    

BSOL has a Digital Photography Group, a Mentor Support Group, Linux Special Interest Group and an Apple Special Interest Group that meet monthly.  BSOL members participate for free.  

Free computer presentations for BSOL members are held regularly in various Brisbane public libraries and our Woolloongabba Computer Training Centre.
