ENVS Course is Open for Business!
The course team's goal was to publish the edX "About" page for this course in mid-September, 4-6 months prior to course launch in February, 2015. Kudos to the team for a job well-done!
Follow-on marketing efforts to raise awareness and encourage course enrollment will continue from now until launch, such as the Dartmouth Now story about this course.

Reception to follow.
