by Kara Swisher, All things D raised $103 million a month ago in its first major funding. And, last week, as part of a major expansion globally using that money, it bought Austria-based video2brain to add to its online course offerings in a range of computer and other skills, in a number of European languages.It’s all part of the plan to dominate the continuing education market, and to bring 60 more employees and a pile of lessons to a service that competes with a range of others, such as Codecademy and Treehouse in the business and computer learning space. Currently, Lynda has 83,000 videos in 1,500 courses, and close to 500 employees. Unlike many hot startups, has been profitable for a long time, making more than $100 million in revenue annually from subscriptions from a range of customer groups, including individuals, companies, schools and the U.S. government.
