About the Author

Author's Page: www.amazon.com/author/augustofailde

Augusto's commitment to the empowerment power of online education goes back to an early Stanford University experiment in computer-based self-paced courses. That experience shaped his life-long belief into what he sees as one of the most powerful "equalizers" of the internet: Online Education. A commitment that continues today with Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).

Augusto is a co-founder of www.MOOCs.University; creator of one of the first MOOCs Provider Directories, www.MOOCs.co; originator of the www.MOOCpetition.com on Change.org, and developer of the MOOCs University App available in Google Play, iTunes App Store, Amazon & others.

Earlier, as a principal with one of the country's first Online Education Consumer Organizations, AboutEdu, and in conjunction with the senior management of the country's largest American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), he proposed, and co-managed the development of the first learner-focused search portal for the affordable online programs of community colleges nationwide.

Prior to joining AboutEdu, he was Senior Vice President of Global Business Development and a member of the start-up team of what today is a billion dollars world leader in International Higher Education - Laureate International Universities. He came to Laureate from one of the first eLearning subsidiaries by a major University, New York University's Online Education division (NYU online), where he headed Global Business Development.
Mr. Failde, a frequent industry speaker, was the featured speaker on "Ethics in the Age of Online Education and MOOCs" at the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics - Higher Education Conference.

He has been honored as one of the recipients of the World Trade Center Institute's (WTCI) International Business Leadership award, and since 2008, he has been a member of the WTCI's Board of Directors.

Augusto is passionate about the need to increase online grief education and support, and is a Board Member of the Online Grief Support Organization, www.MyGriefAngels.org

Mr. Failde is also the co-author of one of the first Business Self-Help books for the Latino population - Simon & Schuster's "Latino Success" (English) / "Exito Latino" (Spanish), and "Good from Grief".

Augusto holds an M.B.A. from the Harvard Business School, and an undergraduate degree in International Relations / Economics from Stanford University.
