UT Instapoll help

Welcome to UT Instapoll

Thank you for using UT Instapoll, a product developed at UT Austin by the Liberal Arts Development Studio. We built this free classroom-response system in order to keep students from having to buy access to commercial systems on their own.


Release Notes

A new version of UT Instapoll is released every semester. Bug fixes and new features are listed below.

  • Fall 2024
    • No major new features. General updates for stability, security, and bug fixes.
  • Fall 2023
    • New installations of UT Instapoll now install via LTI 1.3, which has the following features:
      • Launching UT Instapoll from Canvas is now done through the left-hand navigation menu in your course. We will create an Canvas assignment for you the first time you open UT Instapoll, and grades will be stored there.
    • If you're using an installation of UT Instapoll copied over from a previous course, it will still work, but you can contact us at if you'd like to upgrade to LTI 1.3.
