The type of research used by the researcher is the descriptive qualitative research method. Data collection techniques using the research library and filling out questionnaires. The main data sources in this study were PAI subject educators and class XII students of SMK Informatika Serang and some literature. The results and conclusions in this study are: (a) SMK Informatika answers the challenges of online learning by creating an E-Learning application for SMK Informatika. (b) Educators and students at SMK Informatika agree that the role of teachers cannot be replaced by technological sophistication, especially PAI teachers who are tasked with shaping the character of students.
