The new normal occasioned by COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated the consideration of innovation and new technologies in the strategy, technique and policies of educational system in Nigeria. This is why stakeholders in the educational sector have started to focus attention on the adoption of technologies in teaching and learning at all levels, which has brought to the fore the consideration of open education as a viable option.

Open Education encompasses resources, tools and practices that employ a framework of open sharing to improve educational access and effectiveness worldwide.

This is important in the sense that it gives every child the opportunity to learn at his or her pace if the Sustainable Development Goals 4 and Agenda 2030 are to be achieved. Meanwhile for Open Education to be successful, there are basic strategies,techniques and policies that must be put in place. This is an exploratory study which will use mainly primary and secondary data from journal articles, books, government publications, Internet data as well as personal observations and residual knowledge to explore the strategy that could be used to successfully implement Open Education at the primary and secondary school levels, the techniques that could be used in other to achieve the objectives of Open Education as well as the policies that will help the government to actualise this plan.
