No question is too basic – we have all been there! Experienced members will be on hand to help you.

This service is for all current financial members of SeniorNet Nelson.

Senior Hangouts is seven-days-a-week free online tuition consisting of up to six half-hour presentations per day. A tutor, or Hangout “buddy”, meets up to six registered participants on an advertised topic at the scheduled date and time, and all parties can see and hear each other.

Hangouts covers a myriad of technology-related subjects. The presenter explains the topic by sharing his or her screen, often displaying a Powerpoint presentation. It is explained live, with participants able to interject and ask questions.

SeniorNet Nelson has four Special Interest Groups, held monthly.
All members are welcome, there is no need to register, just turn up – $2 towards overheads please.
