    I was going to enrol on the Powershell one until I noticed it was an enforced $200. The other edX courses I've taken have allowed them to be audited for free and then verified for cost. Looks like the 'professional' ones are paid for only.

    Ouch, unless it comes with a proper qualification from Microsoft (like the equivalent of a MCP/MCTS or college credit), paying $200 or £150 (IMO) is expensive... Considering that there are a lot of free MOOC's out there and you can do a degree from the UoP for $100 per subject class...

    Or that could just be me (or the mood I'm in at the moment) :S

    You can audit some of them, but agreed $200 is big money for a MOOC.
