I've enjoyed this course; unfortunately we no longer have a business account and I had a trial Office 365 account in conjunction with a different edX course and so I have been unable to set up a Power BI Service account. That means I've been unable to complete the labs from module 4 on. So I'm failing the course.
good point - maybe the EDX courses could each have a O365 trial - even so, the powerbi pro trial only lasts 60 days so if there are multiple powerbi courses, that could be tricky.
A couple years ago I had signed up for an O365 developer site for $99 a year - I used it to activate the powerbi pro trial.
Did anyone find a work-around for this? I have a personal power O365 subscription, but i am unable to sign up for power bi using that. The 60 day trial you are talking about, will it work with a personal email ID?
