If an employer is expecting a cover letter with the application, they will likely include a link to attach the document to the online application. As far as writing its actual contents, you should follow the same conventions that you would if you were applying for the job any other way. A cover letter submitted online does not need to be any different than one handed to an employer in person.
Reviewing sample cover letters is a good idea if you are looking for inspiration. Start by introducing yourself to the prospective employer and describing your qualifications. Move on to discuss why the position interests you and how it fits your ultimate career goals. Then save, attach, and submit!
