The widespread introduction of the Internet in every human activity fundamentally changes the ways in which information and knowledge are created, exchanged and disseminated. This leads to a new abstract intangible and immeasurable in volume and range space, bordering on man's idea of the universe. A universe in which information is transformed into a "living organism" that, like man, evolves, i.e. it is constantly changing, evolving and regenerating. Moreover, generated information, its circulation, storage, dissemination and transformation are processes, arose as a result of purposeful human activity. All these processes are introduced to an exceptional ability for open access to any kind of information through which to upgrade our knowledge in real time.

Although nowadays the Internet can be characterized as a kind of means of livelihood, as it covers the daily life of people in almost every aspect, its scale also creates a number of prerequisites of a negative nature. The excessive amount of information circulating on the Internet is now difficult to trace and impossible to collect, process and store. All this leads to a number of negative manifestations of information, which are reflected in the educational process in the form of difficulties in finding reliable public information by students, obscuring the opportunity for full acquisition of quality new knowledge. This, on one hand, creates the need for the introduction of innovative educational technologies or the so-called. "Open Solutions" in the higher education system to highlight the importance of an information resource that can be accessed through open sources. On the other hand, the question is about the level of preparation of young people for working with information from open sources and the extent to which Open Educational Resources will be able to meet modern challenges and be effective when implemented into the educational process.

In this regard, this paper will examine the possibilities of Open Access Education training, and for this purpose will be conceptually presented a Open Source Education Framework, including the following components: Open Solutions, Open Educational Resources and Open Sources of Information. Emphasis will be placed on their overlap with modern methods and techniques for gathering, processing and analyzing information from open sources and their compatibility in the educational process.
