Designing information systems to accommodate the unique needs of various users receives a lot of attention in contemporary software engineering. One such distinctive requirement in the educational context is academic supervision. Academic supervision encompasses activities to assist educators in enhancing their skills for managing the learning process and achieving educational objectives. In vocational high schools, the primary educational goals are to prepare students for the job market and empower them to initiate their businesses. These goals can only be realized if teachers incorporate technical and entrepreneurial skills into learning. The main goal of this study is to assist school supervisors and principals in assessing and directing teachers as they incorporate ideas of vocational education into the teaching and learning process. The research methodology used in this study is research and development, which includes several stages: initial needs analysis and assessment of the current state of academic supervision; development, which involves the creation of a conceptual system model; system interface design; model validation and revision; and evaluation, which requires system testing, implementation, and deployment. Based on the initial investigation and analysis of academic supervision, particularly in the context of vocational education, this research presents a conceptual model and system interface design. The outcomes of this research encompass the interface, system architecture, and user guide for the academic e-supervision system. An expert analysis of the user interface design indicates that the interface received positive evaluations from experts, with an overall average rating of 88%.
