The use of augmented reality (AR) in education and training is growing increasingly. However, applications to integrate augmented reality learning content into training for basic electrical engineering courses are scarce. The individual learning objectives of trainees complicate the digitalization of learning content, particularly for the drawing of circuit diagrams. To increase trainees' learning outcome while simultaneously relieving instructors of classroom supervision, we designed and developed an AR-based prototype, to enhance hand-drawn circuit diagrams in vocational training. The context sensitivity for the hand-drawn learning content, which was lacking in previous prototypes, is achieved by combining AR with image recognition. Through experimental investigation, which utilized a between subject's design, with a sample of twelve participants, a positive outcome of the prototype on learning outcomes was observed, compared to the control group, which did not make use of AR devices.
