    I don't know if they have as much value as a lot of EDU link sellers would like to have you believe, but in a mixed link-building campaign there is no doubt they will be beneficial.

    Many "experts" says that search engines especially Google put more weight on backlinks posted on EDU and GOV sites.
    I don't know but I can say that every site have the same weight on search engines. What you need to do is look for "quality sites" that can put more weight to your backlinks.

    Matt Cutts from Google, said in one of his videos that all else being equal, Google do not assign any greater importance to links from .edu pages than those from any other domains.
