Summary/Abstract: Recognizing the importance of the OER and its most common initiatives, is an important component of the promotion of higher education area in Serbia. The most important reason for harnessing OER is that openly licensed educational materials have tremendous potential to contribute to improving the quality and effectiveness of education. OEE is one of the most important OER initiatives. Serbia is a full member of the Bologna Process / EHEA since 2003. The starting point for the application of the OER concept in Serbia is the Strategy for Education Development in Serbia 2020.The Open Education Initiative, which has become more represented in the higher education system in Serbia in recent years, is the Distance Learning System - DLS. The representation of the DLS concept in the higher education system in Serbia was examined based on the analysis of the number of accredited DLS study programs at faculties and universities in Serbia. The numerical values obtained by analyzing the representation of the DLS concept as the only OER (OEE) initiative actively applied in the area of higher education in Serbia, point to the conclusion that the open education initiatives for the moment in the higher education system are very modest, and that it is necessary to work on their wider application and continuous development.
