Hi, All – At the last meeting, there was a question regarding where to find links to the latest webinar on The MQG website. And then there were questions on how to navigate through the site…
First some quick links you may find helpful:
Mary Fons’s Webinar, “Definition: Modern Quilting” This was fabulous. Worth at least two viewings
Here’s a short How-to-Find-Stuff on The MQG website.
Tip #1: Log in. When you joined the OCMQG, you should have received information on how to sign into The MQG.
Tip #2: When you first “land” on the site, there’s a menu along the top of the site. Hover over the menu word to see what’s included. For example, if you hover over Education, you’ll see Events, Teacher & Lecturer Directory, Blog, and Resources. If you hover over Events, you’ll see QuiltCon East, QuiltConWest, Webinars Future, Webinars Past, and Calendar
Tip #3: Once you’ve clicked a menu item, scroll down. Under Events, the top portion looks like it’s only a list of events. If you scroll down, you’ll see links to past webinars
Tip #4: Be patient and be prepared to click on every menu item to find what you’re looking for….(possibly have your beverage of choice handy)
Tip #5: BE AWARE THAT ONCE YOU LOG IN AND GO INTO COMMUNITY, THE MENU CHANGES.
Notes on The MQG landing page:
- About: Basic answers about what The MQG is all about
- Education: The education landing page shows upcoming events, then past webinars
- Community: This is where the menu changes, if you’re logged in. See below.
Notes on the Community Site:
- Home: This does NOT take you back to the MQG site. It takes you to the home page of Community
- Galleries: Photos of pretty modern quilts. 😀
- Events: This is DIFFERENT than the one under Education. This is a list of upcoming events (oddly, from most future event to most near event) and includes webinars and other guild events (if the guild posts their events through The MQG site; OCMQG does not)
- Groups: List of modern guilds
- Forums: Place to ask and answer questions.
- Resources: Links to Quilt of the Month, Past Webinars, Webinars for Businesses, Materials for guild officers, Annual Reports
