Tips for getting seniors online:

Keep it Simple - If an application is too difficult, try something easier.  Games are one way to get recalcitrant seniors hooked.

Help from Afar - Try to have the same software as your parent so you can go through the process together.

Take Notes - Writing down procedures can help your parent remember.  You should also leave detailed instructions in writing.

Make it easy - Choose a large monitor, a large tracking ball and a mouse that isn't overly sensitive.  Customize software to increase font and icon size, if necessary.

Be Patient - Everybody has trouble at the start.  After a while, your computer-phobe parent may be showing you new websites.
