unable to sign in withour work email
I'm a stay at home a caregiver and I'm updating my skills to get to work. Power BI would be a great addition to my experience and and will look great on my resume. I cannot sign in without a work or school address. Not very helpful for those who are trying to get back to work.
The Power BI community is not restricted to people with authorized corporate accounts.
Because my corporation does not grant any employee the permissions required to log-in to the Power BI community, we are now cut-off from the Power BI community.
Can we create a second-class community somewhere, where everyone can share their issues and solutions ?

I absolutely agree. It's like they don't want individual users. Its stuff like this that makes people hate Microsoft products.

I think it's ridiculous that users cannot sign up for Power BI with an individual email account when they are taking a class in Power BI .

Use Power BI Desktop, you can learn the majority of how Power BI works from there. You'll certainly learn how to import from a range of data source, shape data and build reports. The main thing that's not in the desktop is the dashboards and Q&A, important, but not a huge miss if you're updating your resume.
