May 11, 2015
Personal Finance, New Products

Those of you who have been to the NGPF website before may have noticed it now looks a little… different. No, there’s nothing wrong with your computer or phone. Over the past few months we’ve been working hard to redesign our website, and it’s finally ready!

So what new features have we added? Let us tell you!

1) Improved Navigation of our Curriculum

Our biggest goal with the news website was to make it easier for you, our community, to find the resources you want.

You noticeOur Curriculum a 3×3 grid on both our Homepage, and our Curriculum page, that lists all the personal finance topics we cover. For every topic, you can:


2) Test Your Knowledge… with quizzes!

Test Your KnowledgeAt NGPF, we are always hungry for new knowledge about personal finance. But we want to spread that hunger to our community, and what better way to do that than with weekly quizzes! Powered by Qzzr, you can take the quiz right from our homepage, in the “Test Your Knowledge” section. This week’s quiz: How much does the average laptop cost?

What’s great about these quizzes? They’re quick, they’re fun, and they’re easy to share with friends! You can show them all the great knowledge you’re picking up.

Wait, there’s more? Monthly prizes?? Yes, it’s true. Take the quiz each week and you’ll be entered into our monthly competition. The person with the highest score at the end of the month will receive a $50 Amazon gift card!


3) Direct Access to Upcoming Webinars and Flash Surveys

Every month we offer new webinars and flash surveys to help educate our community on what’s happening in the world of personal finance education and how to apply it to your classroom. Now you can participate any time, right from our website.


4) Upcoming Events

Find out where we’re going to be in the next few months by viewing our Upcoming Events at the bottom of the Homepage. You can also view where we’ve been in the Past Events section.

5) Archives

We know we put out a ton of content every month and it can be hard to keep track of. That’s why we’re proud to have archives of all our past newsletters, survey results and webinars (including links to the slides and YouTube webcast), so you never miss a thing.

6) Help Center

Have questions about our organization or the curriculum we offer? We’ve got answers… in our new Help Center. You’ll be able to find answers to the most commonly-asked questions from NGPF users.

Have a question that hasn’t been answered? Or just want to share your thoughts with us? We’ve made it really easy to communicate with us… on our new Contact page. We can’t wait to hear what you think!
