The group meets once a term to share ideas, practices and code they are developing.
Some experience with UX with designing and developing themes / features but not always to complete into core Moodle because of time taken to review and test, although features and themes are being shared on

Most successful student engagement is when they are in paid roles. Sometimes student projects are not possible to go into Moodle code because further dev required after project end but students benefit and can implement some if not all. Some students specifically providing accessibility and usability feedback which is essential.
Next meeting will include some sessions on LTI as integration ongoing topic as well as what is a VLE / LMS for and where learning takes place (someone pointed out that these discussions started more widely in late 90s)
