One the ways I learned is to watch players play live via stream in the in-game menu. You can also look up leveling/skill builds on the web to help you out as well.

My advice would be pick Lich and stick to it while u learn what the other heroes do. Lvl his deny ability first.
Another important thing u should consider is to always carry a teleport scroll from the 6 min mark onwards.

Try to join the OCN channel and play with other ppl from the forums. In the chat windows there is a + button to add channels.

with the in-game guides that suggest items/skills it shouldnt be too tough, just pick a good support and follow the guides suggestions then all you have to worry about is keeping your hero in a good position.(watch mini map) will still take you quite a few games to get decent, then even more to get good.

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.
