Multiple Problems - can't even get off the ground. Where

Multiple Problems - can't even get off the ground. Where to start??
1. On Course Setup, Course Description is a mandatory field but it will not allow me to enter any text.
2. Under Units, The field for 'Question' will not allow me to enter any text.
3. When I click Save, all of the entered data for the course and the unit is wiped, except the title.
Pretty crap!!!!
