[BioC] Beta score of DNA methylation assays

I been handed a tabular file from DNA methylation containing "Beta"
values (rows are CpG island and columns are subjects) from Illumina
platform. The Beta values range between 0 and 1.
I am wondering how this "Beta" value is derived, what it means and how
to use it.
Or do I calculate the Cy3/Cy5 ratio and proceed as with gene expression
Please accept my apologies if these are basic questions and kindly point
me to any reference. It is my first DNA methylation dataset. Thank you.
