Another way inDigiMOB seeks to support communities and partner organisations is by creating appropriate training resources and supporting existing projects and possibilities, according to the needs identified by communities.
Digital Tips Videos
These videos have been created by the program’s Digital Mentors with the help of the inDigiMOB Digital Access Workers and staff. They are aimed at providing entry-level hints and tips about how to use devices and be safe online. Where possible the videos have been translated into languages used by the communities we partner with.
