Pictures, text on slides and narration - research

How should we use text on our slides and images to help people learn? How much text should be on the slide and what should we say in a live session?

Learning Science Weekly shared about research on just this topic, highlighting that:

"Research supports keeping text close to images,
keeping text a minimum when possible,
and narrating rather than utilizing heavy printed text."

How do you design your slides for virtual classrooms and webinars?
