Depending on what you want to learn:

man <whatever>
info <whatever> or pinfo <whatever>

(lets say you want to learn about your shell and you use bash, then
the <whatever> is bash)

That said, man or info documentation pages can be sometimes very
information dense and difficult to follow. It is often much better to
follow dedicated tutorials on the Internet. So a better solution would
be "<your favourite search engine> <whatever> tutorial"

If you want to learn more about how to administer/manage your machine,
maybe read the release notes that comes with Fedora. You could also
download the various guides released by the Fedora docs team in
PDF/HTML form. <>
