'Zoom' has become a regular part of our pandemic vocabulary, but for many Border residents, the term is alien.
So during Get Online Week, the Thurgoona Community Centre and Expand Careers co-founder Joanne Pilon are running an educational session.
As a user of the platform in her business, Young at Heart Fitness, Heather Cahill is volunteering to support participants in tomorrow's event.
Ms Cahill, who launched Young at Heart eight years ago, runs classes at the community centre and at Glenecho.
All classes went digital during lockdowns.
"We locked down on March 23, 2020 and our classes ceased, so my daughter said to me, 'You should do Zooms'," Ms Cahill said.
"I had a bit of an idea about how to use them already, so a week after lockdown started, we started doing Zooms and haven't stopped.
"During lockdown, every morning they were up doing cardio and strength, and were actually the fittest they'd ever been ... mentally, it was good for them too and we would share a coffee afterwards.
"I've actually met people at parks, just to show them how to use it."
Zoom sessions have stayed popular, particularly for members with health conditions limiting their time out in public.
The Young at Heart group was even on Zoom during September's earthquake. "The computer started rocking on the table and I asked, 'Is anyone else having this problem?'," Ms Cahill said.
"They took took themselves off mute - that was one thing we had to teach them to do - and they all responded 'yes'.
"It has so many benefits, and the more we can teach how to do it the better off we'll all be."

"We're hosting a Get Online Week event to show our community that everyone can learn how to connect with others online," she said.
TCC co-ordinator Sherylyne Moran hoped the event, supported by the Good Things Foundation, would increase residents' confidence.
