Get Started with Taxonomy

Takes about 1 hour

A large project means a lot of content items. And that means an easy way to get lost. Solution? Organize the content with taxonomies. It may be some work at first but it'll be worth it because you'll be able to find what you need much more easily.

Who is this course for?

  • People who'd like a high-level introduction to taxonomies and the theory behind them.
  • Those seeking guidance on how to design a taxonomy that'll serve them best.
  • Content managers and strategists looking for a way to organize content in large projects.


You don't need to go through any other courses to take this one. However, it's helpful to understand the concepts behind a headless CMS, so take the Headless CMS 101 course if you haven't already.

What can you expect?

Taxonomies are really important for enterprise-level content modeling. You'll watch a series of videos in which Michael Andrews, Content Strategy Evangelist at Kentico, explains what taxonomies are, what to use them for, or how to design a good functional taxonomy. After the theory is covered, you'll get implementation tips to help you get the taxonomy model right from the start. In each lesson, there's a knowledge check to help you retain your newly gained knowledge.

By the end of the course, you'll be able to…

  • Explain what taxonomy is and how to design it well.
  • Identify use cases for taxonomies.
  • Design a well-functioning taxonomy for your content.
  • Use a taxonomy so it best serves its purpose.
