"Cumbria University is to allow some students to pay their tuition fees with the digital currency, Bitcoin.

Those attending two new courses examining the role of complementary currencies, run by the Institute for Leadership and Sustainability (IFLAS), will be permitted to use the units.

The University said it hoped that the acceptance of Bitcoins on these courses would lead to "learning by doing"."

In the Beginning there was CPU , then GPU , then FPGA then ASIC, what next I hear to ask ....

Great - let's see how many educational institutions follow this example. It would be interesting if Higher Ed, usually resistant to change, became an early adopter of bitcoin and other digital currency payment schemes

Another example that shows that Higher Education had better develop a strategy for dealing with digital currencies:
