Is it ok for someone to copy chapters or all of a book and put them on Moodle (or a blog)? 

No! Without permission from the rightsholder (publisher / author) such copying is not allowed because it breaches copyright and can get you and Manchester Metropolitan University into bother. Manchester Metropolitan University has a licence from the Copyright Licencing Agency (CLA) which permits a reasonable amount of copying - please use the Digitisation service, it's really easy to make requests and they should be satisfied within 7 working days.
