Our research concerns the construction of knowledge-rich memories, in hypermedia form, for use as aids to problem-solving. One of the most difficult steps in building such memories is constructing a rich set of links between the content elements they contain (i.e., text segments, graphics, and video clips). This paper describes point linking, a method we have developed for automated linking. Point linking is currently being incorporated into the ASKTool, a hypermedia editor in ongoing use at the Institute for the Learning Sciences.
