Software Inspection is an important approach to find defects in
Software Engineering (SE) artifacts. While there has been extensive research on traditional software inspection with pen-and-paper
materials, modern SE poses new environments, methods, and tools
for the cooperation of software engineers. Technologies, such as
Human Computation (HC), provide tool support for distributed and
tool-mediated work processes. However, there is little empirical experience on how to leverage HC for software inspection. In this vision paper, we present the context for a research program on this
topic and introduce the preliminary concept of a theory-based experiment line to facilitate designing experiment families that fit together to answer larger questions than individual experiments. We
present an example feature model for an experiment line for Software Inspection with Human Computation and discuss its expected
benefits for the research program, including the coordination of research, design and material reuse, and aggregation facilities.
