<p>Hi everyone. I'm new to the Moodle CMS so decided to join the community. Been a web designer/developer for about 15 years and developing a site at http://wakingupkenya.org using WordPress. The moodle part is at /moodle on that domain</p><p>Will potentially be looking for advice concerning setting up a curriculum and hope to find some goto people to assist me in this. The two main areas of the curriculum will be roughly (1)Environment (Grow It) and (2) Nutrition (Eat It). May need an optional translator for English/Swahili.</p><p>Thanks for being here.</p><p>Blessings</p><p>JC</p><p>(aka TW, tumbleweed)</p><p><img src="https://moodle.org/draftfile.php/2013772/user/draft/649602875/tw1%3Deagle.png" alt="image of eagle with wings expanding" width="725" height="946" style="vertical-align:text-bottom; margin: 0 .5em;" class="img-responsive"><br></p>

Looking for advice concerning a favorable learning environment that students seem to respond to. Should be receiving curriculum materialsfrom Univeersity of Maryland Extension programs soon. Not sure the best way to cut-n-paste PDF/Word materials into Moodle. Please advice.
Hello and welcome! If they are pdf or Word documents it's simple to drag and drop them into the course page as a File resource, but obviously the students then have to download them. Using a Page is better but as you say, there is then the issue of copying/pasting. You can paste from Word but you have to be very careful with formatting issues that might cause corruption. Perhaps as you are new to Moodle you'd like to take a look around the documentation https://docs.moodle.org/en/Main_page and in particular the sections on Resources and Managing content
There are examples of courses on the Mount Orange Moodle School demonstration site.
that translator is a must-first page!
Mary is quite right the docs are your first port of call. And, the demo site is now something very much worth exploring!!! Great stuff.
Thanks for the advice. Hope to have some free time this weekend to explore.
