Open Education has seen explosive growth in the last decade and especially so in the last few years. This growth has occurred in spite of the lack of common frameworks for identifying, differentiating, and classifying open education structures and concepts. This paper presents an operational exploration of open education, differentiates between three types of openness, offers an overarching term (Open Education Designs) to identify open educational learning environments, and provides a taxonomy for differentiating and classifying Open Education Designs (OEDs).
