Abstract: The ESPRIA project (acronym of the expression "EStudiantes de PRimer Año") is a large-scale institutional intervention to improve the support of students newcomers to the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC), whose objective is to increase their Retention to undergraduate programs, establishing a set of measures aimed at facilitating their incorporation into the University during their first semester. Ultimately, these measures pursue the reduction of abandonment rates that typically characterize the online teaching scenarios. To do this, this innovation project actively promotes the compatibilization of online studies with other personal, family or work responsibilities that characterize distance students, implementing improvements in the process of tutoring and enrollment based on the availability of Study time for new students, as well as in the revision of the workload, the calendar of the learning activities and the evaluation model of the set of subjects involved. Likewise, this project has a clearly oriented vocation to obtain evidence in relation to its operation and its results, developing an evaluation strategy of the intervention based on the use of learning analyzes from the beginning of the registers and the institutional information available on the academic results of the students involved and their evolution during their first year at the University.
