This research uses the Research and Development (R&D) method which includes stages: (i) Identification of Potential and Problems; (ii) Analysis of Needs and Data Collection; (iii) System Design; (iv) System Implementation; (v) System Validation; (vi) System Revision; (vii) System Testing; and (viii) Final Systems. The subjects of this study were MAN 1 Medan students. The instrument used was testing aspects of functionality, usability, and student self-efficacy questionnaires. Based on the results of expert validation on the functionality test, it is obtained a percentage of 100% with very good criteria and has met the aspects of functionality.
