This case study briefly explores how an online, multimedia learning module based on a Cognitive Apprenticeship higher level pedagogy can positively affect students achieving the learning outcomes of a Constructivist project-based curriculum in a blended e-business management program in the Middle East. The cohort in this program is nonnative speakers of English and have significantly reduced life experience and independent learning opportunities relative to many of their international counterparts. The proposal of this endeavor is to support students prior to the start of the constructivist aspects of the project itself. This article attempts to answer the question, which type of support is effective in giving students the scaffolding they need for successful achievement of project learning outcomes without quelling the benefits of working in a constructivist learning paradigm. Results from the sample questioned reveal that such modules are useful for this cohort prior to the start of the group project work with the important caveat that instructors participate effectively in the online mentoring.
