Alternately you can use csvde to import user in AD. The command is cvsvde -i -f C:\Example.csv

You need to use the Powershell AD Cmdlets which are described here with examples:

I highly recommend you use an editor like PowerGUI which has an AD extension and examples for learning how to work with AD using PowerShell.
