This is a good primer on debate format. It comes from a fan site of this site. Debate format isn't formal on this site either, just make sure it's neat and organized. If you want to get good at debating, then read and get educated, learning debate tactics isn't too important.

Also gonna say that you should look up Pro, Con, Burden of Proof, etc. on that site along with some of the big issues. That should give you a good way of understanding how online debates work. Also you can always look at some really good debates of older users here. I suggest: theLwerd, Vi_Veri, Ragnar_Rahl, Puck, Lightkeeper, Tatarize, etc.

You can get a pretty good idea from reading a couple of their debates as well.
