Modelling is considered as a universal approach to define and simplify real-world applications through appropriate abstraction. Model-driven system engineering identifies and integrates appropriate concepts, techniques, and tools which provide important artefacts for interdisciplinary activities. In this paper, we show how we used a model-driven approach to design and improve a Digital Humanities dynamic web application within an interdisciplinary project that enables history students and
