Regular webinars

Our regular webinars are typically held monthly and are specifically designed for members of the Be Connected Network. Come along to learn more about our programs and how to support people to learn digital skills. We also run helpful and interactive sessions about CaptureIT so you know what to do when it comes time to report on your grants.

Our regular webinars are best viewed live as we have a number of interactive components and include information about our active programs and grants. Due to this, we are unable to offer recordings of these sessions.

Join this interactive webinar to learn about Good Things Foundation's Be Connected Network! You will find out more about the digital divide and how you can take action to support digitally excluded people in your community.

This webinar is perfect for people getting started with Be Connected and our other digital skills programs. We will help you get familiar with all the supports available to start your programs and answer any questions you may have.
