Abstract

The growing demand for user-centered, sustainable, collaborative
and ecosystem-aware ICT4D programs and projects brings requirements for
education of a new generation ICT4D professionals. This paper presents a postgraduate field-based course in ICT4D that teaches how to co-create and deploy community-centered ICT services. The course has been jointly organized and deployed by Vrije Universiteit (VU) Amsterdam and Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) for a mixed group of computer science, information science
and artificial intelligence students from VU and UNIMAS. The course design,
experiences, outcomes and evaluation are presented in this paper.
