In closed system energy can be transferred and matter is constant but in isolated neither matter nor energy can be transferred. An example of a closed system is a sauce pan w/ lid. An example of an isolated is thermos.
In a closed system, energy is exchanged with its surroundings, but matter isn't, such as a sealed beaker of water. In an isolated system, nothing is exchanged with the surroundings, like the combustion of glucose in a bomb calorimeter.
