Overview Edit Tools

The Edit Tools function of the Site Editor tool allows a site owner or instructor to add or remove tools from the site. For example, if you do not want your students to see the Lessons tool, you can remove the Lessons tool from your course site. But if you want them to use a Wiki, you can easily add the Wiki tool to your site.

Note: To complete these procedures, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. To determine your role, follow the directions in Participant roles. For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and Roles.

You can quickly and easily add CLEW tools to your site using the Site Editor tool.

  1. In your CLEW site, select Site Editor on the left-hand menu.

  4. Select the Continue button at the bottom of the page. You will see a confirmation screen.
