Selain informasi seputar motif batik, dalam laman ini Anda juga bisa menemukan sejumlah cerita digital pilihan kurator ahli, materi edukasi yang terintegrasi dan dapat diunduh bagi para pengajar, pelajar, dan orang tua, serta sorotan UKM batik lokal.

Kepala Hubungan Publik Asia Tenggara, Google Asia Tenggara, Ryan Rahardjo menambahkan, selain dapat diakses oleh masyarakat luas, pihaknya juga merekomendasikan laman ini untuk dapat diakses oleh pelajar dengan rentang usia 11–14 tahun, agar dapat mengenal batik melalui gawai bersama orang tua.
“Yang dibutuhkan hanya gawai dan internet, untuk lesson pack ini bisa dipelajari pelajar bersama dengan keluarga, terkait memahami batik dalam waktu 60 menit, yang meliputi sejarah, teknik, simbol, pattern, dan DIY,” kata Ryan.

“Ada extra discovery dengan waktu 45 menit mengenai desain, warna, words search, dan kuis menarik dan interaktif juga. Diharapkan ini bisa jadi education resource untuk belajar tentang batik,” ujarnya melanjutkan.
