How does it work?

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. 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.

What topics are covered?

Senior Hangouts covers a myriad of technology-related subjects. There have been tutorials about online banking, interacting with various government agencies, social media, web browsers, auction sites and the use of various hardware and software, including smartphones and Chromecast.
