This chapter presents a case of an EDR study completed at a Canadian college and resulting in developing an innovative educational intervention, Mobile–Enabled Language Learning Eco-System, as well as corresponding design principles. The first section provides an overview of the educational problem targeted by the study, its purpose and outcomes (further elaborated in Study Results). The description of the EDR methodology then follows including its phases, cycles and micro-cycles. With emphasis given to the praxis of EDR, the Reflections section revisits the main features of the EDR method as distilled from our study.
