“My name is Muneer Ahmed. I was born in Karachi in 1954. My parents came to Pakistan when Pakistan was founded in 1947. Both my parents were uneducated but very hard working. My father ran a printing press and my mother was a housewife. I completed my early education in an English language school before moving on to an Urdu language government school to complete my education. Subsequently, all my education has been in English. I did my bachelor of science at the University of Karachi, where my major was Mathematics and my subsidiary subjects were Physics and Statistics. I then did my master’s in Applied Mathematics at the same university, as well as earning a Diploma in Computer Science.”
How did you learn about Alison?
When I was teaching at Chiniot Islamia School & College I was very interested in further education and also very keen to learn how to use a computer. I found Alison while searching online. I introduced my students to Alison and convinced them to learn online. I was an Alison user as well as an Alison promoter.
What was your first course on Alison, and why did you choose it?
In the very beginning, as I remember, I did the certificate courses in Mathematics.
How have Alison courses affected your career?
I haven’t gotten any career achievement but I have got lot of personal satisfaction. Whenever I complete a course and get a certificate I go to bed and start planning for the next online course.
Where are you working or studying now?
At present, I don’t have a job and I am looking for one. Just last Sunday, I took a course on Alison – YouTube Marketing: The Five Essential Steps. I have also applied to the University of London for a course in Computer Science.
What’s next for you, in terms of education or work?
Due to my age, I would like to work from home but I’m also looking for teaching job in a school. I am very interested in Computer Hardware and making computers at home. I am also interested in completing a master’s in Mathematics for free online.
If you could learn absolutely anything in the world from an Alison course, what would it be?
I actually take an interest in learning almost every subject. I like biology and, at the moment, I’m particularly interested in Computer Architecture.
What would you say to someone if they asked you about Alison? Would you recommend it and why?
Alison’s way of teaching is the best and also, Alison is free.
