The software teaches you the differences between oscillation and vibration in the following way:

Vibration is the motion induced in a body by oscillation and oscillation is the displacement of a body related to space and/or time.

The process of vibration inclined to end after the dissipation of the atoms while the process of oscillation unbend, dissipating energy due to friction force, but can be reactivated by an external force.

Vibration is the effect of oscillation of the atoms while oscillation is related to a single body.
