Distinguished Professor Emeritus Murray Turoff has been selected as a Sloan-C Fellow.

NJIT Distinguished Professor Emeritus Murray Turoff has been selected as a Sloan-C Fellow for his pioneering and visionary research in computer-mediated communications, learning management systems, and the effectiveness of online learning. He will be recognized in October 2014 at the Sloan-C International Conference on Online Learning in Orlando, Fla.

Turoff has been engaged in the research and development of computer-mediated communication systems since the late 1960s.
