Online education: Online pesantren

W Ilaihi, Online education: Online pesantren - Ritual in a Digital Society, 2019

"One of the characteristics of the modern society is the creation of an interactive space with many different types of people and cultures. This interactive space is not only physical, but also exists online. Pesantren as Islamic education institutions are spaces for many people to interact and learn. In this chapter, online pesantren will be studied as spaces for mutual interaction through reference to two concepts: affinity spaces and online ummah (the Islamic community). Departing from these concepts, I will elaborate on the characteristics and forms of the phenomena of online pesantren in Indonesia."
