AbstractUniversity students’ courses transitioned from in-person learning to online learning during COVID-19 in 2020. In 2021, many universities offered online courses and in-person courses for students. This study aimed to explore whether students’ learning motivation was related to their different learning environments (online learning and in-person learning) and whether students in these two kinds of learning types had different degrees of learning motivation. Thus, the present study examined students’ intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation, and amotivation in two different learning environments (online learning and in-person learning). The data were collected from 141 undergraduate students. The findings exhibited that university students’ learning motivation (intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation, and amotivation) was not related to learning environment (online learning and in-person learning) during COVID-19. Furthermore, this study presented some suggestions for improving students’ learning motivation.
