Abstract

There has been substantial interest in delivering ICT training options to rural and remote areas of Queensland, Australia, in order to bridge the rural-urban divide. But there is more than just education and training going on: Participants are being empowered to gain new skills and confidence, form new networks, become active in the community, and be proactive in addressing their own health and well-being needs.
