Islamic Stories, Cyber Literature, Pesantren


In the 5.0 era, humans are expected to be able to solve all problems with technology in all fields, including education. In the field of literature in education, students are expected to be familiar with the world of the internet for better education, including pesantren education. This research aims to explore the opinions of Islamic education teachers regarding Islamic stories as cyber literature. This study uses a qualitative descriptive method with the Islamic education teachers in Islamic boarding schools as the participants. The Data were collected through semi-structured interviews and documentation. Interviews were conducted offline and online. The results of this study indicated that Islamic education teachers believed that Islamic stories as cyber literature would have a very positive impact on Islamic boarding school education. Even so, Islamic stories as cyber literature in Islamic boarding schools faced many challenges including facilities, time, and the digital capabilities of Islamic boarding school members including administrators, teachers, and students. This research focused on the exploration of Islamic stories as cyber literature in Islamic boarding schools and was limited to the number of participants and institutions of Islamic boarding schools. It is recommended for future research to be able to examine solutions to these challenges and use a wider variety of participants and Islamic boarding schools.
