The article presents a theoretically significant issue for further development of open education. The authors have analyzed the documents adopted at the international level that result in clarification of the principles underlying the open education initiative. It is a new pedagogy where educators and students co-create, form and develop knowledge, deepen their capabilities and further their awareness as they progress. It has been found that such interaction results in strong belief that everyone should have the freedom to use, customize, improve and redistribute educational resources without any restriction with a free possibility to join a worldwide movement of accessible and effective education. The research identifies the major strategies of open education that are gaining momentum worldwide as a shaping force for teaching and learning globally. Particularly, it examines the status of these strategies adoption in Ukraine. Emphasis is placed on the necessity to implement the idea of open licensing of educational materials in the practice of open education development. The analysis outlines the advanced trends in the development of open education such as «open education», «open university», «distance education» embracing such new concepts as «open educational resources», «open educational practices», «open design». The obtained results are expected to prove useful in identifying promising research areas of open education development, their optimization and coordination with academic and higher education institutions, state and regional authorities and businesses
