Distance learning requires teachers to take advantage of digital platforms in order to continue to carry out learning activities. Therefore, a learning management system (LMS) emerged as a solution. One form of LMS that is most widely used in Indonesia, including at SMAN 9 Bandar Lampung, is Google Classroom. The purpose of this study is to analyze how much influence the creativity of teachers in using LMS has on students' interest and learning outcomes during the Covid-19 pandemic. The approach in this research is quantitative with ex post facto design. The sample is 178 students of class XI IPA SMAN 9 Bandar Lampung. Research data was obtained through questionnaires distributed online, as well as documentation of mid-semester assessment scores from Biology teachers. The results showed that the creativity of teachers 1, 3 and 4 showed a data significance of < 0.005, which proves that teacher creativity has a significant influence on student learning outcomes. Reinforced by the coefficients sequentially, namely: 0.646, 0.675, and 0.812, which means that 1% of the increase in teacher creativity will have an impact on student interest in learning which will also increase by 64.6%, 67.5%, and 81.2%. , but the creativity of teachers 1, 2, and 4 on student learning outcomes has no significant effect, although there is a significant effect on teacher 3 with a coefficient of 0.028, and still shows a relatively small effect of 2.8%, so it can be concluded that teacher creativity in utilizing LMS can affect student learning interest, but is not able to have a significant impact on student learning outcomes which have the potential to be influenced by other internal and external factors.
