Starting with basic outlining should get you started.

Create a file test.org.

In test.org type

* First item

Then type M-RET and you get something like this

* First item

with the cursor positoned after the second "*".  
Type "Subitem" (without the quotes).
Then do M-Rightarrow and you get this

* First item
** Subitem

Then just fill in some sample text, like eg. this.

* First item

This is /italics/ and this is *bold*.

And this is a simple command line example:
: ls -al

** Subitem

Need some text down here as well.

Then do `C-c C-e h RET' and your sample document should pop up in HTML
formatted form in a web browser.

Now you can try using TAB to open and close items (the lines with "*" at
the left), and using M-rightarrow and M-leftarrow to move items up and
down in the hierarchy.

You can use M-uparrow and M-downarrow to move items and their children
up and down in the document.

Once the basics is in your fingers it's possible to explore the rest.
