The problem of education is a very important one and occupies an increasingly wider register among educational specialists, who see these changes directly related to current generations of students. It speaks increasingly more and more about the desire of young people to learn when they want, how they want and how much they want, in their own way, without any constraints imposed by fixed educational program, established by teachers, according to their idea how to go on an educational route. In this context, open education provides crucial support of any person who is interested, and covered a complete and appropriate educational needs, in connection with time and availability of the person. The paper aims to bring attention to the problem of open education and open learning resources, in the context of aligning the educational system at European and world requirements regarding accessibility of education. Also, we use work experience resulting from Erasmus + project entitled “EU-store” European Standards for Open Educational Resources, project no. 2014-1-RO01-KA202-002985, project leaded by our university.
