This paper focuses on exploring possibilities for the future development of online courses at the university level. The working model of an online course on Italian Medieval culture and art will be analyzed, and possible directions of further research will be determined. This work will present the development phases of an online cross-curricular course prototype. This study explores existing e-learning design strategies that enhance intrinsic motivation and engagement. It also offers possible solutions optimizing language learning with appropriate and convenient interventions. The author presents a number of grammar structures in the Italian language represented in the course prototype and a detailed description of lesson structure, the logic behind their order, and examples of creative assignments. The authors also determined the connection between the tasks and game elements as well as the logic behind the choice of plot elements and key characters. The author formulates possibilities for implementing layered storyline mechanisms to create a more personalized and engaging learning experience.
