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 choose and are also given advice on issues that they may not be aware of such as safe internet browsing, computer security 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 may be provided depending 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 Club, a Mentor Support Club, Linux Support Group and an Apple Computer Group that meet monthly.  Members participate in these clubs for free.  

Free computer presentations  are held regularly in various Brisbane public libraries or at our Woolloongabba Computer Training Centre.
