Dennis's original goal when joining Scoop.it was to create a resource for his audience. He initially began using Scoop.it to "re-purpose years of blog content and … share his extensive reading lists." In doing so, he learned that Scoop.it could actually serve as his own social media dashboard, and was "immediately impressed" with the ability he had on Scoop.it to manage so many media outlets.
With this power, Dennis was able to begin curating content on the major themes of his expertise: writing, information fluency, e-learning, and online teaching. While creating these reading lists and collections of his previously published blog content, though, Dennis realized that his readers weren't the only ones benefitting from his curation. He knew that Scoop.it would be a great tool to organize and share his lists, but what he didn't exact was that there would be more people out there interested in what he was posting!
After using Scoop.it for some time, he has found that he can continue to build significant audiences for his topics. He has used Scoop.it as a tool to publish to three different Facebook pages, a WordPress blog, two Tumblr blogs, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, and Stumbleupon.
By sharing his content to all of these different channels from the same place, Dennis is able to save time and expand his reach. He has become an increasingly influential figure in Information Fluency and E-Learning and continues to learn more about these topics each day as he curates and shares new information for his readers.
