Feb. 25--AMMAN -- Alice 3, a version of a software tool that introduces young students to computer programming, is now available in Arabic following a translation project involving students from universities across Jordan, according to a statement from Oracle issued on Monday.
The translation project, which took four months to complete, was managed by the Oracle Academy and Carnegie Mellon University.
Students who took part in the project were honoured at the launch event in Amman on Monday.
"Alice is a free platform from Carnegie Mellon University designed to teach students object-oriented programming by engaging them in a fun activity -- making animated movies and games," the statement said.
