The Manage Tools area of Site Info is where instructors can add and remove tools. Some tools can be added immediately, other require an extra configuration step, such as the URL for a News feed or the URL that the Web Content tool should point towards. With the exception of these tools that require an additional configuration step, almost all information is retained when a tool is turned off.
