SeniorHangouts is online tuition via Zoom. There is no charge. It is an initiative by the Federation of New Zealand SeniorNet Societies in conjunction with Google Classroom, offering a new way to learn online.

  • Small bite-sized 30-minute learning sessions are held online

    in the morning and afternoon as per the schedule listed below each week.

  • Sessions are held Mon-Fri from 10.00am-10.30am, Mon-Thurs 1.00pm-1.30pm and on Fridays 1.30pm to 3.00pm

A tutor, or Hangout “buddy”, meets up with registered participants on an advertised topic at the scheduled date and time, and all parties can see and hear each other. The presenter explains the topic by sharing his or her screen, often displaying a video or Powerpoint presentation. It is explained live, with participants able to interject and ask questions. To learn how to join a meeting see below.
