New ABOG Portal Tutorial: Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment (Articles)

Welcome to this video tutorial, which
highlights various navigation elements of the articles section of the new
portal where you’ll work on and complete your article assignments for the
Maintenance of Certification program. When you’re ready to begin working on
article tasks for the current year, click on any of the article-based
tasks under certification tasks. When you land on the Find Articles page,
you can view your article progress in more detail and choose the articles would like to
complete for the current MOC year. At the top of the page, you’ll see graphics
with more detail than those that are on your dashboard.
If you’re a subspecialist or have a focused practice designation, you’ll have an additional graphic that
shows your article progress for your subspecialty or focused practice.
On the Find Articles page, you can search for articles in a variety of ways using the
filter fields available to you. You can filter articles by selecting a category
from the drop-down menu, or you can search by keyword.
You can even filter by release date. You’re able to filter by open access or ultrasound only,
and you can choose to hide articles that you have already added to your bookmarks.
We’ll explain more about bookmarks in just a bit. Once you select a filter option,
press Enter on your keyboard or click Apply. To clear all filters, just click Clear.
You can view or read an article before you start the quiz by clicking on the article title. Once you’ve found an article
you’d like to complete, you can either click Start to start the quiz immediately,
or click bookmark. Clicking bookmark will save an article
to a special bookmark section so you can continue looking for other articles
and come back to that article later without having committed to it. If you decide to bookmark articles,
you can find your bookmarked articles by clicking on the button in the top right
area of this page, right above the filters, titled My Bookmarks.
On this page, you can view articles that you’ve bookmarked under Reading List,
Quizzes in Progress, and article assignments that you’ve completed.
If you want to start a quiz from a saved article within your Reading List,
expand the Reading List category and click on Start on the article you want to complete. Remember, once you start a quiz, that article will count towards your MOC score
and cannot be deselected. If you change your mind about an article
and have not started the quiz, you can unbookmark the article
by clicking remove to remove it from your Reading List. To get back to the Find Articles page
to search for additional articles, just click on the Find More Articles button
in the top right. To return to the portal dashboard,
click on the portal logo in the top left corner of the page or use the button in the menu in the top right corner. This concludes our video tutorial about the articles section in the new ABOG portal.
