Successful education industry leader building partnerships for distributing ASSIST’s cloud-based K-12 education platform in the USA and internationally

RENO, NV, July 18, 2017 — IntegratedEducation Management System provider ASSIST LLC announced education industry leader Michael E. Spencer as its chief executive officer. Spencer was tapped for his expertise and successful leadership career in education technology to drive growth for the new company. ASSIST recently launched ASSIST 4.0, a fully-integrated student data (SIS), student learning management (LMS) and curriculum management (CMS) system for schools.

As CEO and co-founder of ASSIST LLC, Spencer is actively developing domestic and international strategic partnerships for the cloud-based platform. He is also seeking additional quality curriculum providers to take advantage of the platform’s interoperability capabilities (LIT). With these unique partnerships, not only are providers able to sell their curriculum with seamless SIS and LMS functionality, but they also have a new avenue for broad-scale international exposure with ASSIST’s contracted international channel sales team.

Spencer is the former senior director of international business at K12. Also, he was the managing partner at Global Expansion Strategies and seniorvice president of The American Education Corporation.

As an edtech-industry veteran, he is former president and founder of One2OneMate, vice president and co-founder of QuickPAD Technology Corporation, as well as H45 Technology, and several other Silicon Valley startups—all of which have received multiple awards for innovation and product development. His expertise spans from advocating for one-to-one, mobile and blended-learning environments where tailored tools providing individualized education are key to student performance and achievement.

On the international front, Spencer has worked with European, Latin American, African, and Asian governments and school systems to bring about 21st-Century educational reforms. He is fluent in Spanish and has traveled extensively. Also, he is a regular columnist for EdTech Digest where he writes for the “Smarter Schools” column.

“Our ASSIST 4.0 online integrated education management system will dramatically change, streamline, and improve the management of student data, individualized learning and curriculum integration and management for schools everywhere,” said Michael Spencer, ASSIST LLC Chief Executive Officer. “We are now focusing on selecting the best partners to immediately connect our company with the K-12 schools that can benefit from our affordable innovation.”

In his new role as CEO for ASSIST, Spencer has secured agreements with major domestic and international strategic channel partners, forming worldwide sales avenues that will make ASSIST available to school and education groups around the globe.

Additionally, with his new team at ASSIST LLC, Spencer has developed relationships with curriculum and content providers seeking broad-scale international sales opportunities via the company’s integrated platform. ASSIST, already present in dozens of countries, provides seamless educational opportunities for our international clients. Spencer has garnered the interest of multiple ministries of education in varying countries and significant international announcements are expected soon.


ASSIST was designed by educators from the ground up as a new approach in meeting the needs of education institutions with a single platform. Overcoming the many challenges associated with using a number of different, but necessary school systems, ASSIST 4.0 provides every feature schools need in a fully-integrated system. Teachers and administrators only have to learn one system, in which everything works together perfectly. After successful use in schools in the USA and around the world, ASSIST 4.0 is available now for grades K-12 and higher education in English, Spanish, Portuguese and Vietnamese and can be adapted for other languages.

ASSIST 4.0’s ease of use encourages more participation of all users, supporting student achievement and school district success. The robust and functional single platform streamlines a student information system with learning management and curriculum management systems.

The student data (SIS), SCORM and LTI-compliant learning management (LMS) and curriculum management (CMS) system components provided in a single platform in ASSIST 4.0 would otherwise require schools to buy at least three different types of systems. That is a problem for schools because the various systems are not very compatible, complex to integrate and expensive. With ASSIST 4.0, teachers and administrators can spend their valuable time focusing on student learning and their outcomes, not in navigating between multiple different systems. ASSIST 4.0 makes jobs in education easier by combining SIS, LMS and CMS features in a single integrated system.


ASSIST 4.0 is available now from ASSIST LLC in the USA and through education resellers in the USA and internationally. ASSIST 4.0 works on any computer or device with Internet access. As ASSIST LLC grows and expands its presence, the company welcomes establishing strategic partnerships with domestic and international resellers. Interested resellers can email ASSIST at For information about ASSIST 4.0, educators can visit or call ASSIST LLC at 866-984-3384.


ASSIST LLC has developed a cloud-based, fully-integrated education management system. Founded by a team of experienced education professionals, ASSIST combines all aspects of a student data (SIS), student learning management (LMS) and curriculum management (CMS) system, simplifying school-wide management and allowing for schools to focus on student learning and outcomes.

Since 2013, ASSIST has streamlined education management for schools around the globe. The company’s mission is to share this cost-effective, comprehensive solution making a significant difference for education worldwide.
