I think I used the free Google Cardboard Camera app to produce the panoramic 360 degree view of the room. *The round.me image displays fine in the WP editing window, but does not display on the page, when viewed from the browser.  If you can get to the following location, there are hotspots in the view that take you to more info. https://uncfsu.instructure.com/courses/32/pages/roundme-example

I created the above round.me 360 degrees image using my old Samsung SIII phone on a tripod.  You could piece several of these 360 images together to make a virtual tour.  One nice feature is that you can add sound to the images, so that the sound plays when the viewer is looking at a certain part of the image.  In one of the example tours, a rooster crows loudly when the viewer is facing the image that has chickens in the yard, but when the viewer has panned the image and has his/her back to where the chickens were located, a rooster crows again, but this time, the audio level is lower, giving the impression of being further away from the sound.  *That is just good tool manipulation on the part of the tour creator.
