More Duke classes to use iPods this spring

While iPods were distributed to students more sparingly this year, more classes at Duke University will incorporate the use of the devices. According to the AP, 42 classes will require the use of iPods next sememster, up from about 20 classes last spring. Last year, Duke gave iPods to all 1,600 incoming freshmen, but this year the school limited distribution to students whose professors required them. Approximately 1,200 students will get iPods in the spring semester.

“Most classes that have used iPods previously have been foreign language, engineering, music or documentary studies classes. University officials said the list is broadening to include math, biomedical engineering and even dance,” reports AP. “A history course called Digital Durham and the New South will use iPods as students record data from archives such as court records. From course materials, students may also create podcasts, or online presentations to which people can subscribe for automatic download.
