Besides, there is the Electronic Institutional Repository of Mariupol State University (the eIR of MSU) that is included in the OpenDOAR global directory of academic open access repositories. The eIR of MSU is intended for accumulation, arrangement and storage in electronic media of the university staff intellectual property: conference and workshop papers, theses and dissertations, books, chapters and sections, etc (The Electronic Institutional Repository of Mariupol State University [the eIR of MSU], n.d.). However, understanding open education philosophy and experience of its implementation is relatively little in MSU and, thus, it still needs to be adopted and promoted in both pre-service and in-service training processes. It is essential in this regard to raise students' awareness of open education opportunities, in particular, using open educational resources (OER), for instance, in designing their own learning trajectories.
