For the first 12 weeks, students will work through 6 modules that contain lessons, class discussions, and exercises. They will complete Drill Down exercises, receive written feedback, and meet their peers both in group Q&A sessions and in the class forum.
Each module will contain content about a topic in UX writing, end of unit quizzes, a UX Writers’ Hall class discussion, a Lexically Speaking segment, and a UX Writing Drill Down unit with lessons on various UI elements followed by exercises where students will put their new knowledge into practice. Modules are broken down into units, with each unit containing several sections.
The Drill Down exercises are based on our insider knowledge of industry interview questions and take-home assignments, and will give students the skills and confidence to ace any UX writing interview.
After completing the boot camp, students will move on to the research module where students will learn UX-writing-focused research methodologies. Students will create a fictional digital product and then conduct research for this product. This module culminates in submitting a final research report for mentor review.
Digital Product Design
In this section of the course, students will put everything they’ve learned thus far into practice by designing and writing the copy for several screens of their own fictional digital product. They’ll also create accompanying UX writing deliverables, just as one would in a real company. Finally, students will conduct user testing on their products. The goal is to create a piece of UX writing work that students can add to their portfolios.
Real Industry Project
In the final section of the course, students will work in groups on a UX writing project for a real company, under the guidance of a UX writing mentor. The companies that each cohort will have the opportunity to work with will be announced a few weeks before this section of the course starts.
