With the advent of commercially available Mixed-Reality(MR)-headsets in recent years MR-assisted learning started to play a vital role in educational research, especially related to STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education. Along with these developments it seems viable to further frameworks and structured design processes for MR-based learning environments. Instead of a widely applicable framework for designing educational MR applications, we here consider the case of virtually enhancing physical hands-on experiments in STEM, where students are given a certain problem to solve, and how to design these. For this focused realm, we suggest an empirically driven problemand user-centred design process for MR applications to get novices to act more like experts and exemplify it for a specific experiment and problem set containing a non-trivial electric circuit with capacitors and coils.
