The implementation of e-learning holistic education has been widely carried out, but few have studied it related to aspects of the development of the use of communication and information technology in the world of education. Due to an abrupt outbreak of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the educational paradigm has to be shifted to a new era of online education at all levels while maintaining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The implementation of e-learning holistic education at SMP Bosowa School Makassar is constrained by several things, such as the existence of community groups who do not understand and agree about holistic education and the learning culture of students from early school which is not in line with the learning culture in SMP Bosowa School. However, despite facing various challenges, the implementation of e-learning holistic education at SMP Bosowa School went smoothly because it was supported by stakeholders and the applicable curriculum.

1. Introduction

Islamic education today is experiencing increasingly severe challenges. Today's social reality shows the increasingly severe degradation of the morality of society in general, this is assumed from the lack of balance between the inner life and the outer life. So that one of the things that is expected to be a solution is that Islamic education needs to strive anticipatively to always guard and guide individuals towards the formation of a superior and noble human person. The reality of education today only prioritizes the scientific and intelligence aspects of students. The moral and ethical aspects as the basis for forming the nation's character and culture are increasingly marginalized.

The mental condition, character, character, and morals of the nation are concerning such as deviant behavior, behavior that is not in accordance with the values of noble character and behavior as if there is no positive legal order in accordance with the order of Indonesian cultural norms. Character and culture in the life of the nation can bring about a setback in the civilization of the nation, on the contrary the life of people who have strong character and culture will further strengthen the existence of a nation and state. The problem of education in Indonesia is very complex because in all its aspects there are problems that need to be solved. Moral degradation has been rampant in the world of education so that it has become a blurry portrait in the world of education. This can be seen from the widespread circulation of pornographic videos played by students, rampant fights between students, cheating in national exams, the number of drug cases that ensnare students, the number of motorbike robbers played by students, chili peppers, school farewells with students. bikini clothes, and various other negative roles (Kompasiana, 2021;, 2022).

Responding to the various behaviors mentioned above, raises questions related to the role of education today. Education is a process of changing the behavior of students so that they become adult humans who are able to live independently as members of society in the natural environment around their homes. Real education does not only include intellectual development, but is more emphasized on developing the character of students as a whole (holistic in nature) so that children become more mature. Many researches on holistic education have been carried out (Nur Zakiyah, et al., 2021; Elisabeth Sarinastitin, 2019; Asmaul Husnah, 2017; Niya Yuliana, et al., 2020; Muhamad Restu Fauzi. 2019; Iffan Ahmad Gufron, et al., 2020) However, Research on holistic education that is realized at Bosowa Scholl Middle School Makassar has never been done, especially with the development of communication and information technology that is increasingly rapidly.

This research is based on the background of the thought that education in the contemporary era should refer to holistic education so that it requires reformulation of thinking in the world of education that includes all aspects of the students themselves. Students can have character according to what is aspired by the school, family, community, state and nation. The existence of students as a generation that is a future leader candidate certainly requires adequate competence so that later they are truly able to develop the mandate given by religion, family, nation and state on their shoulders.
