Welcome to SeniorNet Nelson


SeniorNet Nelson is part of a community training network that supports and motivates people aged over 50 to use and enjoy computers and other technology in their everyday lives. All our Volunteers are also over 50.

  • We operate between February and November each year and have a break in December and January.

  • Sometimes during Covid-19 it will be necessary to hold events via ZOOM or Google Meet. Please check the Timetable.

  • REMEMBER TO CHECK OUR FACEBOOK and TWITTER pages too. There are logo links at the top of every page.

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.

Senior 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.
