This focus of this report is to provide an evaluation of the DIAMN programme at the University of Colombo School of Computing, to which there were two Sida-sponsored intakes in 2003. The programme is designed to provide participants from other Sida/SAREC-supported IT departments in Africa, Asia and Latin America with the necessary skills required to design, install, administer and maintain local area networks and well as internet access. The evaluation focuses on the quality; cost effectiveness; relevance of the course/s; qualifications of students entering DIAMN; student satisfaction; use of new knowledge in home countries; recommendations for Sida regarding future support for DIAMN; and feed back for UCSC to how to improve the course.
