The approach has been to focus on relationships drawing on the cultural preference for community and sharing. An initial 2-day face-to-face workshop allowed participants to meet and nominate their preferred mentors, and to have a hands-on supported experience with the technology.

Elders and other respected community leaders have been key participants both in the face-to-face workshop and in the 8-week online environment. They have brought their own experiences; their own stories to the learning.


There has been structure in the online program alternating weekly between a focus on specific learning through activities and opportunity to meet and follow-up the discussions with their mentors.

The mentoring relationship will continue for another four months when a final evaluation will be undertaken.
