My honest opinion: Either play with friends or don't play at all. This kind of game is much more enjoyable when played with friends, so much more that I don't even consider playing alone after trying it with friends, unless I'm bored to hell.
To answer your question, the best way to learn is to play with a good team and try a new hero every game. Other than that read some guides on how DOTA should be played and what some basic strategies are, not hero guides but general DOTA guides.
Also with most heroes the suggested item list is fine so don't trouble yourself much with items.
