Then there is walk in internet: it allows to entry in web world! In the center of screen there is weather. Here you can see weather forecast. Then there is chat: it allows to communicate with other people. In this way you aren’t alone! At the bottom there is Eldy tv. Here you can see web video. At the end, there is useful.

Impact

Eldy is the first software to allow over 55 to enjoy the internet and the computer.

Eldy has over 150.000 users since January 2007. These users are mostly (>95%) over 55 and most of them (>70%) did not use computer before installing Eldy or having Eldy installed.

Lessons learnt

If we provide senior and illiterate users a clear software, they get in love with technology.
