A lot of skills have different effects under this Scepter Upgradable condition. I'm new to the game, and I don't know what this means.

For instance, the Venomancer's Poison Nova reads the following:
SCEPTER UPGRADABLE: Increases damage and duration, and decreases cooldown.

If an Ultimate is "Scepter Upgradable", that means purchasing the Aghanim's Scepter item will enhance your hero's ultimate. Usually there is a damage increase, cooldown decrease, and/or mana cost decrease, although some heroes have additional enhancements (i.e. Tiny with a scepter will wield a tree that enhances his Toss damage and gives him cleave damage for his regular attacks).

Aghanim's can be assembled with a Point Booster (you can get this at the Secret Shop), a Blade of Alacrity, an Ogre Axe, and a Wizard Staff.

Total Cost: 4200

While there is a limited amount of heroes whose Ultimates are enhanced by Aghanim's, IceFrog has previously stated that he wishes to implement scepter upgrades for all heroes.

This indicates that these abilities can be enhanced if carrying the item Aghanim's Scepter.
