Abstract: Open Education is movement with a long-term tradition and broad approach. In this paper we compare Open Education with smart education first. We can conclude that Open Education as a holistic concept can embed smart education with its mainly technological focus and covers all three quality dimensions to improve the learning quality: potential, processes and results. Furthermore Open Education embraces all three levels: macro, meso and micro level. Such a holistic concept can change strategies and learning experiences of future education to address the needed societal challenges. It requires future research and surveys that are started now based on a first pre-survey on MOOCs revealing the differences between MOOC designers and learners. We believe that Open Education can improve future learning and education to facilitate learner-centered education addressing the requirements from learners as well as educational providers, public authorities and societies.
