You'll learn a philosophy and a methodology that will give you newfound confidence in your designs becaue you will have rigorous tools to break down complexity. Using a repeatable, straightforward, and structured process, you'll be able to create naturally intuitive user experiences that reflect the way that the human brain works. Basically, you'll become a better designer.

CONFIDENCE IN COLLABORATION

You'll also gain confidence in dealing with stakeholders, users, subject-matter experts, and clients—you'll know you are asking the right questions, at the right time. You'll involve them early, and you'll know exactly what to do with them. Basically, you'll become a better facilitator.

Introduction

  • Get up to speed on the philosophy of Object Oriented UX.
  • Learn to identify the four types of unintuitive objects.
  • Learn the the four laws of OOUX.
  • Learn what makes Intuitive objects, and the psychology of why you want them for great UX.

ORCA Basics

  • Take a whirlwind tour of the ORCA Process, so you can look ahead to the next 8 weeks. Spoiler: ORCA stands for Objects, Relationships, Calls-to-Action, and Attributes. It's an iterative step-by-step process that will help you UX like a badass.
  • Using a simple three-object project, get your feet wet with the process at high-level, so you'll be prepared for the advanced concepts to come.

ORCA Round 1: Discovery Part 1

  • Forage for nouns to gather a short list of potential objects.
  • Learn to identify objects with SIP: structure, instances, and purpose.
  • Explore object instances to help define your objects.
  • Brainstorm high-level object lists.
  • Build a system model to map high-level relationships (and start to see your contextual navigation come to life).
  • Create the foundation of your object map with a nested-object matrix.

ORCA Round 1: Discovery Part 2

  • Define permission-based user roles.
  • Brainstorm each object's calls-to-action with a CTA Matrix.
  • Finish the first draft of your object map!

ORCA Round 2: Requirements Part 1

  • Create an Object Guide, fleshing out your object's purpose, ownership, inheritance, estimated instances, and more.
  • Explore advanced inheritance concepts like object bases and junction objects.
  • Add detail to your nested objects—elaborate on cardinality, mechanics, inheritance, and default sorts and filters.

ORCA Round 2: Requirments Part 2

  • Expand on your CTA Matrix, exploring the context of each CTA and articulating the user's motivation behind each bit of functionality.
  • Add attributes to your attributes (so meta!). Which fields are required? Who has permission to see which attributes? What is the source of each attribute?
  • Consider conditional logic based on an object's state to define object permutations.

Break Week

  • The advanced concepts we go over in weeks 5 and 6 are gritty. During this week we have a break to catch up and clarify some of the finer points of inheritance, privacy, and your objects' conditional logic.

ORCA Round 3: Prioritization

  • Create a launch strategy by prioritizing your objects, relationships, CTAs, and attributes.
  • Get ready for prototyping: define what attributes and CTAs need to show up on cards, what can wait for the detail views, and what can be behind progressive disclosure.
  • Learn about prioritization surveys—a straightforward method to bring users into the design process.

ORCA Round 4: Representation

  • Sketch with OOUX-style templates to wireframe cards, detail views, and list screens.
  • Learn how to turn your sketches into a clickable prototype, ready for user testing!
  • Learn about how to test from an OOUX perspective—making sure you have accurately represented your user's mental model to create a super-intuitive foundation for IXD!

OOUX and ORCA in the Real World

  • Learn how to prototype and test content with a Webflow CMS.
  • See a demo of Adalo, a no-code OOUX-based app creation tool.
  • Get a primer on teaching OOUX and running OOUX workshops with clients, users, and SMEs—IRL and virtually.
  • Get a tour of the ORCA calendar, a 4 week schedule for doing ORCA within your organization.
