This requires that the principal has the ability (competence) in the field of information technology, especially learning technology as a means of supporting the performance of the principal to more effectively carry out the implementation of the principal's tasks related to the principal duties and functions of the principal. The approach used in this study is "naturalistic qualitative" because this research was conducted in a natural situation or in a "natural setting" and most of these methods collect data that are qualitative and do not use measuring devices (Nasution, 1994: 5).
