Independence and creativity are considered important aspects of learning in the COVID-19 pandemic era. This study aimed to analyze the independence and creativity profile of elementary school teacher education students in online lectures viewed from learning motivation in the COVID-19 pandemic era. The study used mixed methods with a sequential explanatory design. Snowball sampling technique was used to select the study subjects. Questionnaires and in-depth interviews were used as the data collection tools, using Google Forms software. Miles and Huberman’s (1994) interactive model was used as the data analysis model. The findings of the study showed that: (1) students were less able to work independently and confidently but had high learning discipline and were responsible; and (2) students lack indicators of flexibility and originality but have high curiosity, resilience, and persistence in learning creativity. The findings of the research revealed that independence and creativity in learning were included in the medium category. This study can be used as a reference for further research.
