Recently, students' current learning styles can play an important role in addressing the issue of supporting and promoting students' motivation for learning and the development of their creative thinking skills, allowing solve problems through a programming language, this competence is a key aspect that computer science students must dominate.

In the digital era, it is common to see students working at different times of the day and night. When they do their activities they need feedback from the professor, which does not necessarily coincide with the established schedules of tutoring. This is one of the main obstacles for most students to correctly build the code that solves their exercise, causing demotivation in them.

Even these days, students need to be mentored with timely feedback and motivating and create new strategies to improve their solutions to the problems that arise. A motivated student will feel encouraged to do more exercises, thus increasing his or her skills in developing solutions that will lead to enhanced problem-solving competence with programming.

The specific objective of this study was to give an automatic learning platform to the student that permits them to work with their activities any time and give appropriate feedback enhancing their learning process to problem-solving with a programming language, as the professor is giving this feedback. The result of the research shows that students feel motivated to obtain the correct solution guided by the platform feeling that it helps to increase their solving-problem competence using the platform.
