Abstract: CSILE is an educational knowledge-media system with which students collaborate to produce a database that encompasses most of their academic work. It is intended to promote the building and exploration of connections between ideas. Keywords are used as the basis for connecting students' notes. A CSlLE database constructed by grade 5-6 students was analysed. Although students tend to use few keywords per note, the texts of their notes contain substantial and consistent domain vocabularies. A simulation was conducted of a form of procedural facilitation which would expose this phenomenon to students and significantly boost connectivity in the database.
