As part of a university initiative to encourage creative uses of technology in education and campus life, Duke distributed 20GB Apple® iPod devices, each equipped with Belkin® Voice Recorders, to over 1600 entering first‐year students in August 2004. iPods and microphones are available to borrow from the Link.  Although iPods are still distributed this is the only year all students were given an iPod. This is the program credited for starting the Duke Digital Initiative as a program at Duke.
