We did some further analysis a while ago, to try and figure out how many were real live finished pieces of work: it was about a quarter of them. There are quite a few 'test LO' and 'hello world' s in there, but it's still a sizeable body of content.

>Users have created about 11,000 learning objects

Which you might argue was a sign of successful empowerment of teaching staff :)
How many institutions can boast of having 11,000 LOs created on Articulate?

Here at Nottingham we've been running the software since 2008 and are using ~130GB in the USER-FILES folder.,

We are investigating Xerte as a possible replacement for Wimba create. The question I have been asked to investigate is how much resource is needed if this was adopted university wide.  At current we have a local install of the system allocated 4GB of space.
I suspect that the amount of space required would be dependent on the size of any resources created which could be considerable.
If Xerte is widely adopted across your campus, please can you say roughly how much space is being used so we have at least a ballpark figure to consider in our calculations.
Best wishes
