In order to breed bettas, you can purchase what is called a breeder tank which keeps the female safe from the male until he is ready. His signal that he is ready to breed is by building a bubble nest.

Once the bubble nest is complete, you can release the female into the tank with him, and he will basically squeeze the eggs from her.
Once this is done, you should remove the female from the tank, and the male will tend to the eggs.

Breeding bettas is potentially deadly to the female, so this should only be done by someone with enough experience breeding bettas
