I'm creating a problem bank and each problem is named using a list (e.g., \item Parametric particle trajectory). I'd like to auto-generate a list of problem names from this list and I;d like that list to appear at the beginning of the document. Is there anyway to get LaTeX to do this?

I could create a new environment if that's necessary; I'm just not sure how to proceed.
