A recent class presented by Nancy Clark, human sciences nutrition and health program specialist, showing how the freezer can be a best friend during the holiday season was recorded. Iowa State Extension offers interactive online classes throughout the year on everything from holiday meal preparation to home finances, healthy eating, as well as for childcare providers. “We’re trying to tear down a lot of barriers,” said Brenda Schmitt, human sciences specialist, family finance. “Some people can’t make it to the office and some people don’t want to.” Being able to take an interactive course online provides the convenience of being at home, Schmitt said. All that is needed is a computer or tablet and an Internet connection. Going to a public library or local extension office to participate is another option.
