This paper describes the transformation of a multimedia program, designed to teach research skills to business students, from one based on an 'instructivist' model to one underpinned with a constructivist philosophy. The revised program uses the theory of situated learning as a framework for the instructional design, and introduces elements such as authentic context, an authentic activity, collaboration, and opportunities for articulation and reflection, into the learning environment.
