This article is framed per the UNESCO recommendations to support open educational resources. Open education advocates an inclusive, diverse, and lifelong learning education. In our work, we designed an instrument to assess open education competencies. The study objective is to present the expert validation of the e-Open instrument. The method was validated by 16 Spanish and English speaking experts using a questionnaire to collect data to measure clarity, coherence, and relevance. This survey instrument utilized a Likert scale composed of five constructs (UNESCO recommendations), 14 indicators, and 36 items. Statistical, concordance (Kendall's W), and significance analyses were performed. The results showed that the items are clear (explicit), coherent, and relevant. This instrument may be of value to academicians, researchers, trainers and decision-makers interested in mobilizing open education instances.
