Virtual Environments: Is one life enough is an award-winning, university-level course on the professional use of social media, including Second Life, Facebook, Twitter, Blogging, and YouTube. The course is taught online at the Dublin Institute of Technology in Dublin Virtually Live Campus. Students attend as avatars and maintain online journals. Dublin Institute of Technology is the largest provider of third level (university) education in Ireland. Dublin Virtually Live is a recreation of Dublin City online in Second Life, a digital virtual environment (3D Web) whose content is created entirely by its users.

A Second Life Resident is any person who has a Second Life Avatar with which they participate, or have participated, in the Second Life digital virtual environment.
Two Top Prizes will be awarded: People’s Choice Award, based on popular vote; and Sponsor’s Choice Award, based on panelist vote. Songs will also be assessed for Special Mention Awards for uniqueness and style.
