Google has made available the codes you will need for the Google rich cards for restaurants & online course rich card.
A recent study has revealed that structured data increases clicks, so make sure you use any structured data that is relevant to your industry.

Google has made it clear that they are just testing this feature and hence it’s only available to a limited group. However, you can show your interest by filling up this form. We recommend you to take the time and fill up the form because it really can get you the exposure you were seeking. It will only take few minutes to fill the form but can offer mammoth benefits.

“By building Rich Cards, you have a new opportunity to attract more engaged users to your page. Users can swipe through restaurant recommendations from sites like TripAdvisor, Thrillist, Time Out, Eater, and 10Best. In addition to food, users can browse through courses from sites like Coursera, LinkedIn Learning, EdX, Harvard, Udacity, FutureLearn, Edureka, Open University, Udemy, Canvas Network, and NPTEL.”
