There's an article on Educause about West Point doing something along those lines.

I am wondering if any schools have tried to approach this from an 
educational perspective by e-mailing all users (or a subset of users) 
attached files with enticements to open the attachment.  If users open 
the attachment (which is actually a program) then they are reminded that 
the attachment could have been a virus and tries to educate the user on 
dangers of opening attachments that are clearly bogus (similar to the 
"Dear domain.edu user,..." viruses).
