This study aims to describe: (1) the concepts and strategies of technology-based Arabic calligraphy learning in the Online Khat Learning community, and (2) students’ opinions on learning Arabic calligraphy in this community. This research is a qualitative descriptive study. Data collection techniques are observation, interview, and documentation. Data analysis techniques are qualitative data analysis techniques in data reduction, data presentation, and conclusions. The results showed that: (1) the concept of Arabic calligraphy learning in the Online Khat Learning community was adapted from the Hamidy method, which consists of imitation (taqlidiyyah), stabilization exams, in-depth mastery, tamrin, and ijazah. Technology-based Arabic calligraphy learning in the Online Khat Learning community, in general, uses WhatsApp and email media. It can be seen in the following steps: (a) preparation, (b) material explanation, the material can be in the form of videos, pictures, and explanations shared in the WhatsApp group, (c) questions and answers, (d) students write and send their works to the teacher’s email, (e) the teacher provides feedback via email to each student. Because each student’s abilities are different, the teaching material at each meeting is different from one student to another. (2) Students think that this community is outstanding because it is an alternative for learning Arabic calligraphy online in a new era that does not allow face-to-face learning. They are happy to study in this community because, in addition to getting Arabic calligraphy material, they also get material on motivation and values to form a robust Islamic calligrapher character.
