The eFriends Project delivers one-on-one training for people in their own home or public venue of choice (for example a local café or library).
One-on-one training can help people gain the right skills to connect to the world through digital technology. Training can cover many topics, including:
- Device basics (for computers, tablets and smartphones)
- Internet basics
- Online safety
- Organising (e.g. calendars, reminders)
- Online communication (e.g. Skype)
- Social networking (e.g. Facebook)
- Finding information (e.g. Google, maps)
- Online shopping
- Education and entertainment
Is eFriends training for me?
Do you get frustrated by your device or the internet? Do you wish you could communicate with others more easily? Do you have trouble remembering appointments or finding locations? Do you want to be entertained by accessing free music, videos and games?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then eFriends training could be for you! People from all walks of life are welcome to participate in training programs. In particular, we have the capacity to work with older adults and people with disabilities.
