If you’re a senior with a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer, you need Gluu. It’s sticky, it’s free, it’s Canadian, and Gluu is an essential resource for older adults who want to use technology confidently.
Gluu is on a mission to help Canadian seniors become the most digitally literate in the world—one tap at a time. This non-profit society is committed to making digital skills stick by developing printed materials, and facilitating online courses, live online events, workshops and volunteer support.
Whether you’re looking for help on using your new iPad, need to understand how to keep yourself secure while online, or just want to know how to watch The Crown on Netflix, Gluu’s resources are targeted towards seniors.
Best of all, all of Gluu’s resources and materials are free of charge and are advertising-free. And because of a grant from Canada’s Digital Literacy Exchange program, until March 31, 2022, every Canadian senior can get a free Gluu Lifetime membership absolutely free.
Without a doubt, gaining digital skills and the confidence to use technology is necessary for millions of older Canadians. A lack of digital skills leads to social isolation, makes accessing government and other online services challenging, and creates a population of older adults threatened to be left behind as technology further integrates into our daily lives. Gluu is the tools seniors need to learn to use technology to maintain physical and mental health, making it possible to live their lives to the fullest.
